Well; I once re-installed and that was all I needed. You don't even need the highscores (mine had dozens of lvl 30 rogues of "Defeat the Mighty Dragon" anyways), but don't lose the questdate if you don't want to go over unlocking all the levels again...

Those files sound about right. One easy way to tell is to check the Date they were last updated; if any files have a date later than the install date, then they are the ones that get updated and consequently need saving.
