transferring Audacity

Decidedly non-tech user about to attempt a clean install of Windows 7 to replace Vista. Currently have Audacity 2.0.5. What should I do to preserve Audacity with its associated files?

Are you talking about your AUP & AU project files?

There is some information [u]here[/u], but I’d recommend you forget about that and export everything to regular audio files (WAV, FLAC, etc.).

Or at least, save an audio file too as a backup.

Then install the latest version of Audacity (currently 2.1.2).

Thank you, that’s what I’ll do.
