Hey guys, first off I know there are 1000s of other forums and threads about this but I want to hear it from you!
Alright so I have a mid-2007 iMac running Tiger 10.4.11 and want to (FINALLY) upgrade to Leopard (10.5). Thing is, I have so much crap on my main HDD. I've backed up some of it over the years but there is so much and SO MUCH that is hidden in a bunch of folders that I don't even know existed. I do have Disk Inventory X so I can find the major files/ folders. So..... I've read that I should do a clean install. I really don't want to go that route as there are so many apps, settings, tweaks, files, etc. etc. that I don't want to backup and do all over again. I mean, if the "upgrade" feature isn't safe then why do they even have it? I would do a clean install but there's so much crap at the moment and don't have the time to go through it all (would at least take me a couple weeks). I'll probably do it in the future. But for now, I'd rather simply upgrade. And if I understand correctly, the upgrade will do just that and leave most if not ALL my files/ apps/ settings etc untouched. Can anyone clarify or anything that I should be aware of?
