I have just replaced a broken hard drive in my mac book pro.
Having lost my original snow leopard install disks I installed lion on new drive from a new lion USB stick.
When I have restored from time machine back up on an external drive, which took 3 hours, the files do not appear to be on the new hard drive despite the space on the new drive being used when info is checked.

Is there any way to transfer the files succesfully?

Many thanks

Liam

Has it restored them into a different user?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
