I need to do a re-install of Windows 7 OS. This will be a completely clean install on newly formatted clean partition. With that in mind what are best practices relative to BCM. I will back up the dbase using the built in backup tool right before I shut things down. Is there anything else I need to do to enable a clean and simple restore following the re-install of the OS and Office 2013?

Please give me every possible little thing that I can to do prep for this. I really need this to be a clean and (reasonably) effortless process with no hiccups.

Thank you.

That is all you need for BCM. Along with the BCM backup, I'd copy the folders (or at least the MS folders) under Appdata - %appdata%\Microsoft\ and %localappdata%\Microsoft
