^ True, most profiles and game saves are put in users directory, plus if you just copy pasted, you'd need to enter your keys for the games.
Here's what I do before formatting, re-inst os's back up my profiles/saves and keys.
Then when the os is all set up, I just re-install/re patch everything and copy the backed up profiles/configs/saves to the destined folders. I know it's tedious but it reduces a cause of problem for me.
Siggy c/o stefanels!! Thanks man \m/
