Hey guys hoping you can help.
I know this has been covered loads but I think it's a little different. Im new to macs so sorry in advance if I ask some daft questions.
I have had to do a fresh install with a problem installing lion. So I did all that etc and then I did a migration. Now this copied all my stuff but my movies music etc basically I believe my user files. I think I have found the problem. I migrated with a name different to my own at the moment basically one was called joe and the one I'm using now is called josef. I I have tried to go Into users and account but it's not there just the file I am using now.
I'm in preferences and it says 800gb in other..... Can anyone help.. Please
Thanks alot!Just call Me Joe
My First Mac; Newbie and Proud

You need to do a fresh install with no user accounts
When the mac restarts you will be asked to restore from a backup, do the restore and your user account will come back
But you should also be able to access the restored account when you restart so give that firstMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system
