Newbie Question: Moving Operating Systems

Hey guys, first post on here.

I am building a new PC and moving from Win7 to Win10 on a new drive but I want to be able to keep my current configuration for Foobar2000 without losing all of my playlists since I know that they are directory based and I have a lot of my library organized into large playlists separated by genre mainly with similar artists clustered together.
Will I just have to simply keep the same folder structure for my music (C:\Files\Music in my case) and then copy over my current build of Foobar as well as the AppData? Or is there anything else special I should consider?

Any tips would be much appreciated thanks.

AppData foobar2000 folder is fine as long as the files will exist in the same drive letter and paths as before. If you're using a portable install, you'll want to copy the foobar2000 folder itself, as that's where your config lives, not the AppData path.
