    Manual transfer from Time Machine
    Sorry I still don't have my head completely around what I can do with Time Machine.

    I had thought all i could do with my new mac is restore everything from time machine and have an exact copy as what I did. Even clicking through the various sections doesn't give me full control down to the specific documents/folders.

    But I just opened my time machine folders and could go into all the various folders.

    Can I actually connect my time machine to a cleanly installed mac and not going through migration assistant, filter through the latest time machine backup and drag it into my mac?

    Another thing

    I was gonna start a new account on my mac cos my prev mac was named after my school. So I'm thinking I can't just drag my user library files over right?
    How would I trAnsfer these system files?
