Backing up/deleting

Apart from manually deleting each book, is there a method to back up the sony, then can I just format it from the settings menu.

As I dont want all the stuff they have put on by default, However if I ever sell it down the road, l would like to put it back to its original state.

I dont want to format the thing will have it not turn on again. Also I pursume just copying all the directories off might not work, due to hidden folders etc.

Thanks

All the samples that come pre-installed on the Sony are on the software CD. You can safely delete them.

To make a backup, simply copy the files from the "eBooks" folder (or whatever it's called - it's a while since I've used the Sony, I'm afraid) on the drive that appears in Windows Explorer when you connect it to the PC with the USB cable.
