Need to know which files to copy to a new PC to maintain same chatbars, HUD, windowselections, overview settings, etc...

I exported the Overview
C:\Documents and Settings\Name\My Documents\EVE\Overview
OverView1.xml

However, what about the following:
char_123456789.dat
char__.dat
user_123456.dat
user__.dat
pc.dat
prefs.ini



Do I need each one of those files?
Do I copy them over after I install the game again, but BEFORE I actually log into it for the first time (or should I log in first, then overwrite them)?

Is there some stuff that I cannot save, regardless of which files I copy?



What about for EVEMon? Is there something I can do to get the needed files/preferences set within it, too?



Thanks,

I always copy the char files across to keep my overview and screen settings. You do not want to copy the PC.dat file is holds information about the PC's configuration like the type of graphic card etc.

I think the user setting hold the client config, like if you run in full screen or not.

Anyone else have info on the remaining files, and what about EVEMon?
