Clean install Windows 10 question

I mostly have all my files stored on other drives anyway, so when I do a clean install it's only going to be the OS SSD that's going to be formatted. What I want to know is, is it safe to just copy my user directory wholesale to my HDD, then copy it back to the SSD when the clean install is done, or will this cause problems?
