Which files do I need to copy/backup in case something goes wrong? I want to re-install FM Pro Advanced 11 because "Clean My Mac" removed som "unnessecary" files, which gives me some errors on start-up. Everything else works as far as I can see, but this irritates me.

 

Besides of the program folder and /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/ are there any other files/folders I must include?

 

Can I run a new install on the default location without loosing my scripts and other user defined stuff or will I get a "clean" FM?

Weeell, yes? I'm talking about re-install of FM. I don't know which files are located where and I don't know whether my user defined scripts a.o. are stored in the database or in a separate "ini-file". I just want to be sure not to loose everything and bed left behind with at complete blank FM.

Everything that make (tables, fields, data, scripts, layouts,...) is all in filemaker files (fp7 extension for FM11, fmp12 for FM12 and 13).  These do not get deleted when you delete FileMaker Pro itself, or reinstall it.  So there is nothing to backup.
