I must be absolutely stupid. I do not want to back up my enitre drive, I only wish to back up my media files - movies, music, pictures, and writings. Is there a way to do this?
I was told that I will need a clean install of Windows to fix my computer, and that I will lose all of my files. I need to be able to take all my media and have it for when I get my computer back.

the easiest way, if you know where all the files are is just manually copy them and paste them into an external drive.
for example if they are all in your My Documents folder it is very easy.
f they are spread all over your computer then you can do a file search for music (for example) then copy and paste the resulting search output.
If you have backup software you should be able to configure it to filter by file type. I'm not sure about Memeo instant backup as I don't use it. But since this is once off backup while your system is reinstalled then best to do it manually
