You can use the root account and an external drive to save the ENTIRE user account folder (ie the "home" folder) to the external for future use, but after that I'd just wipe the drive and start over (Migration assistant will probably be able to "restore" your user from there).
I tried to copy the files to my USB stick.
I selected "copy" on the folder, went to my USB stick (it's formatted in NTFS as I use it for my Windows backups, but I can see all my files on there) but there was no "paste" option when I right click on this folder.

Am I missing something obvious when trying to copy?
