hey guys

i have lots of documents, music and graphics on my computer
but i also noticed that i don't have some of the iLife programs, and as i understand i need to reinstall OS X, and the best way for me is Archive
but i need to hear from you, what will happen to my documents? and the freeware? will i need to back up everything to another drive, and reinstall the freeware?
what is archive?
what about all the passwords? history in the internet and bookmarks?

thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
