I want to re install ubuntu 12.04 again on my USB San Disk 16G because i accidentally deleted my boot folder and it doesn´t run, but I personalize it a lot and i want to kept all the configuration of wine, gnome, cairo-dock, and other programs i have. I just ask myself, what are the directories that content all the configuration. I try to copy them all whit root user (except boot because I don´t have it ._.) but some of them don´t want to copy, like some on the dev and mnt folder. I just need to know what files I need to copy to have again my configuration what files I can leave them intact and why the other ones don´t copy.

THANKS a lot
