The title says it all. After too many
OS X and now
macOS upgrades-in-place, my disk is cluttered with too much history. There is also the occasional small but unnerving issue that may just be resolvable by a clean install.
Moving from Catalina (10.15) to (10.16), my plan is to save just
~/.. Is any other path necessary to maintain personalized settings?
(After upgrading disk-to-disk—as opposed to time-machine-to-disk—I haven't been able to continue using my Time Capsule histories, and hence I'll be wiping these and starting fresh.)
