But then I thought that instead of ordering a restore disc, I should just use a Rescue and Recovery Backup from a few years ago!
What I'm wondering is the easiest way to restore files and system settings. Files and Settings Transfer Wizard? System Migration Assistant?
I've used the latter before, but I was actually migrating between systems, not just to a earlier version of the same system.
My greatest concern is the retention of metadata, especially for "date created" which seems to be lost quite often!
I'm doing a full disk image with Macrium Reflect just in case something goes terribly wrong, but I don't know how easy it is to just extract files and settings from this.

You can move your entire Firefox profile (it's under application data, a hidden folder) over which includes your bookmarks, history, saved passwords etc. Here's an article about that: http://smallbusiness.chron.com/transfer ... 78755.html
