I recently erased my hard drives and reinstalled Mac OS X on my MacBook. I attempted to use Setup Assistant to restore my old user ID with its files, but received the error message:


Errors and Warnings:

- 2013-02-23 22:17:10 -0800 Some documents for [username] could not be transferred

- 2013-02-23 22:17:10 -0800 [username] could not be created


I then continued on through the setup process and created a new user account instead, assuming I could fix the problem later. I then installed the latest combo update via Software Update and attempted to use Migration Assistant to restore my backed up files, but received the same error message.


I need some advice on how else to fix this problem, thank you.

Mac OS X (10.5.8)
