OK, i see what you mean. I think my problems are going to be mostly in /opt. Things like .filetool.lst, and crontab. I would have to look around for more examples but there are files that are not in /home that I'm worried about.

Right....and probably all are listed in .filetool.lst. My method is to:

1. create a copy of my backup file ( to make sure it doesn't get overwritten)....if you have a server, do a webbackup.  
2  record  bootcodes ("showbootcodes")  
3. load fresh with dsl norestore
4. copy files as desired from backup
5. restore webbackup

Maybe someone has a better way; but this has worked for me.
