After only six short months, my computer has accumulated some stuff that didn't completely uninstall, mucked up the registry, etc. Even though performance isn't notably suffering, the machine isn't what it once was. So far, I have:
1. Save old emails (Can't find where Thunderbird keeps them).
2. Save old bookmarks.
3. Find and save all .xls, .rtf, .txt, and .doc files.
