    Will formatting my disc delete Leopard?
    I'm trying to Partition my hard drive with Boot Camp but it says some files can't be copied so back up my disk and format it. I've backed it up, but will formatting my drive delete the recently installed Leopard and restore Tiger? Or once I format will i still have Leopard?

    I'm not sure if you can set it up to not include the os but mine copies everything, so yes it will install the files and the os. heres the apple support page on it http://www.apple.com/support/leopard/timemachine/

    unwedoogie,

    Instead of using TM to restore your hard drive, use SuperDuper for the backup - it makes a bootable copy of your backup, much easier to restore than TM. Get it here: http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDup...scription.html it's free unless you want the extra features like scheduling.
