I am trying to move my wife's user account from a Time Machine backup using Migration Assistant.  Migration assistant chugs along for 2 1/2 hours and says everything was transfered hunkie-dorie.  However, when I try to log her on, I can't.  When I log on as me, I went to System Prefs --> Accounts, her username is there.  However, when I look inside the Users folder, none of her information is there.


thanks in advance,


PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), MDD: G4 single, 2 GB Ram, 160 GB HD
