6. Now that the two font folders are side by side, drag the fonts you want
to back up to your backup folder.
7. After you have backed up the fonts you want to delete, right-click the font
files in the Fonts folder and click Delete.
In the event that you want to reinstall a font, all you have to do is drag the
font file from the backup folder back to the Fonts folder. An Installation dialog
box lashes on the screen as it adds the font back to the library. After you drag
the file back to the Fonts folder, the file remains in the backup directory because
it just copies it there. After you have confirmed that it was actually installed,
feel free to delete the font file from the backup folder.
