50,000 times!... must have cost a fortune!.

Back up your data to another drive and copy it back later. Programmes you will have to re-install.

Yes but a total waste of time and money.

MS has the exact pages and how to do it. You make a ntbackup of your disk with system state and then apply it to a new install.
