    I can't restore my music or photos using Backup 3
    I backed up my Home folder, iphoto library, itunes music, and everything else Backup allows prior to wiping my HD clean and putting a clean install of 10.5. When I try to restore my music, photos, settings, etc, using Backup, I get an error message that the restore has failed.
    I've tried multiple times but I get the same outcome.

    Anyone else have this problem or suggest a workaround? i can deal with losing the music....just not my photos.

    Thanks

    P.S. I backed up everything onto a external Firewire HD, not iDisk.

    Apple released an update to Backup yesterday to coincide with the Leopard launch... Maybe you need to download the update......

    I did the same thing. Used Back up with Tiger and then downloaded the newest Backup 3 for Leopard and everything worked well. All my stuff transferred over...music, pix, bookmarks etc.

    Make sure you use the newest version of backup like stated. Let us know if it works.

    I also backed up everything to an external firewire drive. WD My Book Home Edition.

    I'm not sure if this is the problem, but all of my backups appear to be "incremental" and not "full backups". I am running Backup 3.1.2, but the restore fails each time.
