OK, I want to back everything up then reset my computer as there are a few thing's that haven't really been working quite right. 


I don't want to use a disk image because that'll back up the user profiles and stuff that I don't really want to keep.

File History doesn't work, it's one of the reasons I want to refresh my laptop. 



So is there any kind of method / work flow for this? I want to keep all of the programs that I've downloaded and stuff. As well as documents and files. 


Not sure what the best plan of attack is, cheers.
