iMac OS 10.8.2, 24"


Apple store did a clean install. I am unable to recover iPhoto nor iTunes files. I have a daily backup but when I try to restore iTunes I get a message that can't restore because it is an Apple product. In my Library folder, neither Library nor Application folder has an iPhoto file and the only iTunes folder has a plug-in. I do have a backup on my iPad but I don't know how to transfer/import taht into my iMac.

I also tried the Apple Store to check if they store my purchases and could download them.


My questions:

1. Where does iTunes store music downloads?

2. Where does iPhoto store the photos?

3. How can I transfer/download photos and music files from my iPad?

iMac (24-inch Early 2008), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
