I am contemplating my first truly clean install in perhaps 20 years. My current working Mac is a direct hand-me down since Tiger in 2005, which was already a migration from OS8 or 9, around 2001.
Assuming I need nothing except my keychain to remain intact, what's the best method to ensure its survival?
For this exercise, I will have Time Machine & also a clone of the drive before nuke & pave, as well as off-site storage on Backblaze, so let's assume all data is 'safe' & can be recovered if needed.
Current & replacement OS will both be 'current macOS', either 10.14.4 or 10.14.5 depending on when I actually do this. The machine is a Mac Pro upgraded 4,1/5,1 so spare drives are easy to add & replace.
