i need help, a lot of i think
after about two years of endeavouros plasma use i would like to reinstall my system.there is too much mess in the system i dont know how to get clean everything. i have installed a lot of programs, reinstalled them, tried them, made them and done but i also want to move my home partition to an internal ssd.
first i need a backup. i use grsync for my home folder on a external hdd. the first problem is now solved.
now we get to the more difficult part for me:
i have backup my
my installed programs i have saved as a text file with pacman
pacman -Qe > list.txt
the backed up files contain the most files i need like fstab and exportfs for my nfs server.
but how do i save all the files in virt manager? in which files are the surface settings of dolphin? is it recommended to use PIM Exporter?
so my question to all of you is: how do you go about reinstalling again?
many will say a reinstall is never necessary, others use different backup options.
i hope to learn something more about backup and and even linux file systems by asking these questions.
sorry, english is not my native language, i hope i have expressed myself understandably anyway
