Yes indeed, installing the program again, then swapping in or importing
the existing (old) setups, plugins whatever, even copying the folder over
whole in many cases, without going through long and arduous setup
proceedures for the app itself (uh hell im certainly not reinstalling
blender plugins when I can copy over my existing folder).
Why not just image the C drive? MUCH easier.
And how many times do you do this anyway?
The only time I last installed Windows was when I converted to Win 7 nearly
a year ago...
