Hi,

I recently upgraded my HD (1TB Seagate) to an SSD (Crucial MX 100 512GB) on my mid-2010 C2D 2.4 white unibody macbook. Nothing wrong with the old drive, just upgrading. Total disk space used has been around 300GB. I used time machine to backup before switching the drives, and restored from the backup after installing the new drive I am missing many files. Mostly .pdf, and office files. All of my photos and music seem to have transferred fine. I had to re-enter the product keys for office.What would be the best way to scan the old drive for the files that I am missing on the new one?
Thanks.

if you didn't select the files to be backed up in time machines sys pref pane it would have not copied them over plain and simple
