Yes - two ways - copy your existing folder and replace it after install telling it NOT to overwrite files or do the uninstall but do NOT delete the P3D folder - all your custom a/c will remain - P3D only deletes files it installed. AS long as you reinstall to the SAME folder - you are fine. Possibility of having to clean up some entries in dll.xml.exe.xml, simobjects.cfg so you might want to back up these, JIC.

That is what I do quite frequently, un-install P3D, but don't go and delete leftovers in the install folder. Only delete the 4 files that have always been asked to be deleted, 3 appdata folders and 1 document folder.
