File ratings & tags in Windows Vista

You can rate and add tags to media files in Vista straight from Explorer. My question is, how do I make sure those ratings and tags are backed up from installation to installation in case of the OS failure? ... or are they embedded in the file themselves?

They are set into the id tag of the file itself - So they are permanent. You can say that vista has a built into media tagger if you like ... I still like the godfather and tag&rename better, though.

Their own media tagger I'm guessing since I don't know of MP3s having specifications for ratings. At least I haven't seen them widely used. These embedded ratings and tags apply to videos as well?
