My laptop harddrive is in it's final throes; last night it started making a light grinding noise every few minutes. I've turned off the computer, and I'm hoping for a final startup so I can backup my data. I keep constant backups of vitally important data, but I'd love to get all my wallpapers, saved games etc. off it if I can.
I'm running Vista. Is there anything I need to worry about with permissions on the 'My Documents' style folders? Or can I just basically copy all of c: *.* to an external drive, then copy them to a new installation of Vista?
