Hi

Just started to use Time Machine and I think its great but I was wondering what would happen if my Mac Book Pro packed in and I had to reinstall Leopard but my Time Machine Backup still work with the installation? or does it depend on the specific copy of Leopard that created it?

I have a lot of work thats backup so I need to be careful.
QUOTE Thanks

just read that back and it doesn't make that much sense,

it should have read:

Not to worry. Time Machine will restore your system after a new install of Leopard.

That's what a good backup program is all about!
