I need to reinstall FCE 3.5 from the original discs.  Have been advised in this Forum to manually uninstall the program first according to the guidelines in Article TA38198.  The procedure includes deleting the folder Final Cut Express Documents, which contains my Project Files.


I have burned my Project Files to a CD and they are also available on a bootable clone on an external hard drive.  Is this adequate backup?  Will it be easy/possible to import the Project Files into the reinstalled FCE 3.5 from the CD?


Anything else I should have thought about but maybe didn't? 


Thanks for any help/hints.




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), multiple external hard drives
