Hi, I recently shipped my macbook pro from NZ to to the UK.  It was in storage for 3 months.  When it came back it was running really slow and freezing all the time.  I was advised to re install and then import just my data from time machine.  Now time machine will not back up. it claims the drive is full.  how can I fix this problem?


The laptop worked for 2 weeks and has now started to freeze again, I figured it may be something related to not being able to back up.


I just went into an apple reseller and they advised making a new user account but I dont understand how or why this would work, but it does seem t freeze less.


Any Ideas?
