Restoring Time Machine Backup?
- Member Since

- Macbook: 1GB 667 MHz RAM, 2.16 Intel core duo 2, 120GB Hard Drive. Iphone 3G.
After my Hard Drive failing on my mac and getting it repaired, I was told I needed to reinstall the OS system. I have now reinstalled it and am now using leopard. Luckily for me, I saved my Hard Drive contents on an external Hard Drive, before it packed up, with time machine.
I have now plugged in my external hard drive via USB and I am now wondering how do I get my Backup from my external onto my macbook? Do I just drag it across?
Any help would be appreciated!

it's best to do it when you first re-installed the OS, but you can still do it now...
open Migration Assistant in Applications>Utilities, and there's the option to restore from a Time Machine backup

Are you wanting to Restore from the TM backup??? If so.. leave the backup where it is...
Boot to your Leopard Install Disk.
Go to: Utilities >>> Restore System from Backup
Once in the Restore Your System dialog... click Continue.
Click/Highlight your External TM Drive... then select the Backup file that you are wanting to restore from.
Follow the rest of the prompts.... and Viola! your back in Time.
