By default you possibly will, although if you backup your home directory
(basically everything in /home) you should be able to restore the
backup. When backing up make sure you press CTRL and H to show hidden
files and directories (files and directories beginning with a full stop
for instance .mozilla) as the hidden folders will contain things like
bookmarks and other user data.
