I don't have movies, but in the Albums section you right click on the image and get three choices, Small, Medium and Large. You might try that.

TM does restore the OS, it just isn't bootable. Thats what we've been saying here, and what the post in your link says. TM *can* restore the OS, but you'll need to boot the machine with something...

If it's important, you might be able to rescue the deleted files with something like DataRescue. You can search for it. It's about $100US, but if the film collection is important, it might be worth...

The only logic I can see is that the "novice" user might be tempted to dabble in the Library that shows up in the owners directory, so they hide it there, but that same rookie probably won't very...
