    Leopard Clean Install and Time Machine
    My macbook pro has always seemed to run a little slow since i have installed leopard about 8 months ago. I was thinking that i might try a fresh install and wipe the system. I was wondering what would be the best way to get all my data back. I have everything stored on time machine, would i be able to just restore everything from that or is there a better way thanks

    So its real easy and fast to get your data back? Is there an option that restores it all at once instead of having to select all the files at once?

    After you finish the install it ask you if your moving from another mac and you can select Time Machine and it brings every thing over just like before.
