Reinstall?

I need to reinstall my computer and I was wondering which files to keep for after my reinstall, so I don't loose my settings, templates etc? I can just copy the .IntelliJIDEA directory, but I guess I then will be copying much more than I need?


Regards,

You need to backup files under .IntelliJIDEA\config folder which contains
your preferences. Everything under .IntelliJIDEA\system can be safely
deleted except .IntelliJIDEA\system\vcs which is Local History (LVCS)
storage if you need it.

Isn't the license file under system too?

Keep "config" folder and delete anything from "system" exept 'idea.license'.

Also, keep your %IDEA_HOME% directory.
