    I normally do a backup for all the stuff in my documents, its where I keep most of my stuff.
    programs wise - dvd burning software, (nero 6), Adobe CS (which is 5 disks), AIM, firefox, Office 2003, benchmark stuff, camera software, all the drivers and whatnot. its normally 1-2 dvd disks, depending how often I fresh install.

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    I just redownload it all, because it forces me to get the new versions of stuff.
