Hi guys,

I'm on the home straight to having my life back in order All I need to do now is get my Home Folder back into my fresh copy of 10.3.9.

I have searched like mad but i'm not finding the answers so I any help would be fantastic. I'd really like to know the process behind the back up restore before going ahead with it.

Also, what wil I get back? I'm clinging on to the hope that this will restore all my previous emails and sub-folders and my iTunes metadata (which is desperatly important to me)

Thanks people.

I would back up your existing user then just replace the contents with your old user account, make sure you give yourself permissions to use all your old files and folders - Xray may help here

Ok thanks, How exactly do you go about "replacing the contents of old user acct."? I'm working off a brand new drive so there's nothing to save here.

I'm just concerned that'll I lose to info listed above?

thanks
