Guides on emulating older applications

• Clean-Install Assistant makes updating your System Folder to a new version of Mac OS a matter of minutes.
• And it's much easier too, since it handles the migration of all your personal items and third-party extensions, printer drivers, special folders, etc.
• Now you can enjoy the stability of a Clean-Installed System Folder without the hassle of re-installing your essential additions.
Upgrading a System Folder to a new version of Mac OS often takes a lot of time, because you need to figure out which files to move to the new system and which ones to leave behind (extensions, control panels, printer drivers, application-specific items, special folders, etc ).
Clean-Install Assistant makes this process easier and faster because it does the sorting and moving automatically (using its list of factory-issue Mac OS files). It'll carefully collect your additions and move them to a separate folder while you update the System Folder, then move them back to the right places inside the new one with a single click!

Clean-Install Assistant also allows the following uses:
• Save space and backup your valuable additions and preference files only, instead of the whole System Folder!
• Install the same set of additions on multiple Macs: just copy the 'System Folder Additions' folder to each Mac and click 'Add Back'.
• Remove extra files and folders from your System Folder to restore it to a previous state: you can take a 'snapshot' of the System Folder and have Clean-Install Assistant extract any items added since.
