Just been scared to do a fresh install because it can't be upgraded from 6.8. I'm saving the old HD just in case I need to revert back. This will be the first time in 20 yrs that I'll try 'custom' partitioning. I've always gone the default route. I want to setup extra space/partition for backups until I can build a stand alone NAS. I hope all my config files in 6.8 work in 7.3.
