So I'm planning on reformatting my computer. Good news is that I have FS9 on its own separate HD, C: is the one getting reformatted, D: is where FS9 is.
I know c: is where the FS9.cfg file is (definitely backing that whole folder up!), but I don't know where are all the registry keys, since they seem to be spread all over. I also have tons of payware and add-ons, of which many have stuff on c:, thhe only ones im really interested in saving though are my PMDG planes.
Anyways, as far as FS9 itself is concerned (not so much the add-ons), what should I back up in C:? And which reg keys?

Just back up your Aircraft, and scenery folder (if you have any added scenery). With payware, you will need to reinstall. If you have FSPassengers, back up the .DLL files inside the "Database" folder (On my PC, this is at D:FS2004FsPassengersDatabase).

Aircraft, Sound, Scenery, Addon Scenery, Gauges, Modules, and the folder where all the AI traffic files are located (cant remember it's name) are the folders i keep when i reformat my computer. Just install FS on the fresh drive and throw all those folders back in there and it should be as it was before formatting.
