View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to perform preservative reinstall

November 22nd, 2012, 06:20 PM
Hello. I have been having all sorts of problems since upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10 a month or so ago. I have searched are the internet and this forum for an answer to this problem so sorry if it is a duplicate. Is it possible to reinstall Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 while still preserving program installations, paths, and all files? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Probably you want to backup your home directory.See if any of this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem) can help you.
