I am about to do a full re-install of Ubuntu via Wubi and want to ensure nothing is lost when I uninstall. I've read that by downloading the entire C:/ubuntu/disks folder on Windows is the proper way of "backing up" Ubuntu with Wubi. But I have a few questions about how this helps me should something go wrong:
My main intent is to reinstall Ubuntu then send all the files I had on my old version to the new one. I've never done this before, but I'm fairly certain the disks folder will NOT allow me to recover individual directories I have currently. Is it better to use an external HDD for these files?
For private SSH keys, similar to the question above, if I were to just copy the containing directory and replace the new OS's copy of it, this wouldn't cause any issues correct?
