Default Default user, All users

When looking inside "documents and settings", is there ever any critical data inside the "Default user" folder, the "All users" folder, and the "Public" folder that isn't ALREADY inside a main user account folder?

I think MCE stores its recoded media in the all users directory.

I always scan them for data when I am backing up a computer.

You never know whats in there and you don't want to return a computer and have grandmas season of 24 missing.

Yes.

RegEdit, this isn't intended to insult you - I've read quite a few of your posts and I really think you need alot more training before working on people's computers. Purchase a few books & training videos focusing on the A+ and Desktop Support Technician certifications......and use them.

A + 2006, 2009, MCDST. Done that. My question was out of CURIOSITY. Obviously I back up ALL of documents and settings and select folders from just inside drive C, if I don't just outright clone the whole drive.
