    New Hard Drive
    After a few months of the ring of death!! I got my Mac repaired today. I have had a new HD installed.

    I purchased a new external hard drive yesterday and backed everything up.

    On boot up when i got home today i reverted back to the last backup but cant seem to find all my files.

    Music is not in Itunes, cant find iPhoto so cant find my photos!!

    Is there anything i have not done right??

    What OS are you using?

    You backed everything up how?

    Did you verify the backup - as in make sure it worked and all your data was there?

    You reverted back to the last backup how?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    As soon as i plugged the external hard drive in time machine kicked in and backed everything up.

    Then when i got home tonight booted up and time machine popped up straight away and selected the last backup and reverted to that.
