Rebuilding host Mac computer: How to back up all FM11 DB files?

Post

     Hi,

     I'm about to wipe a computer that's hosting a Filemaker Pro 11 database, shared to 4 other users in an office.

     I would like to manually back up everything to do with the FM database, do a clean install of Mac OS 10.8.x , re-install FileMaker 11, and restore from the backup

     Can someone point me to instructions on doing this?

     I'm comfortable supporting Mac OS, but severely lacking in FM knowledge experience.

     I've seen the manual, it mentions creating schedules... would it be easier for someone like myself to back up the relevant folders / files, in order to restore?  Supposed to be doing this within an hour or so...!

      

     Many thanks,

     Col
