If a person is planning on doing some modding of there own, at least the files are there. I have 3 computers and I move a lot of files around, but I keep all the important ones(.dat, .dll, etc) originals in a safe external source. Already had one harddrive crash and lost many, many hours of work. Never edit the original files in root. Transfer to another computer or external source and do your editing/modding there.
