Hi Everyone,

I've just completed a full system restore using time machine. I have OS X 10.6.8 installed on my IMac.

I was under the impression that my system would be restored exactly the way it was at a particular point in time, only to discover that time machine has deleted the downloads folder on my internal hard drive! In addition, I'm unable to use my web browsers (Safari and Opera). I'm sending this post from my tablet! I get an error message: "The application Safari can't be opened" when running Safari and Opera generates a lengthy error report.

Please can someone let me know what went wrong and how to fix it (if at all possible). I've just lost all my data using an application that's supposed to back up and restore data accurately and safely!

Any help will be much appreciated.
