    How do I uninstall Snow Leopard?
    When Snow Leopard first came out I jump at it, purchased it online and install it with a download. I hate it. There are printers I can't use now because the drivers aren't compatible and it appears there are websites like Hotspot Shield that won't operate for me because of Snow Leopard. I want to remove it and return back to my original software version. I'm relatively new to Mac (15 months) so I can't figure out how to uninstall this software. HELP!

    What are you talking about purchased it online and installed it with a download?
    I don't think so Jim!

    Nailed, as Colbert would say.

    PS. Hotspot Shield works fine in Snow Leopard.

    There is no legal "download" of Snow Leopard.

    Hotspot Shield says right in the top lines of their homepage that it does work with Snow Leopard.

    Have not heard of any printers that worked with Leopard, not working with Snow Leopard at this point.

    You will not "uninstall" the OS. You want to step backwards, you'll need to install a previous version of the OS.
    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.

    How do I Transfer data from "Previous System" folder?
    I just reinstalled OS X Leopard hoping to eliminate Snow Leopard (which has caused me a lot of problems - mostly from printers that don't work now - driver issues). Once I reinstalled Leopard it told me I couldn't access my previous system because it is a newer version than Leopard, therefore I had to go ahead and reinstalled Snow Leopard again. I didn't erase my old system files, they were copied to a "Previous System" folder. But now I want to put all my old data (calendar dates, addresses, emails, etc.) into my newly installed OS. but I can't figure out how. I'm sure there is an easy way, can anyone help me?

    Are you for real?
    Refer to your other thread.... http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-...ml#post1036330
    and you will more than likely see that Pirated software is frowned upon here, and assistance is not going to come your way!

    We do not allow duplicate threads here. I merged your new one with the first one.

    Did you Download Snow Leopard from the Web? If so, that is against the law. Apple provides no downloadable Snow Leopard. If you pay for it online, it will be shipped to you.

    If you downloaded it, then I am closing this thread as we do not allow any discussion of any pirated software here at Mac Forums.
