Yesterday, I upgraded my late 2008 MacBook Pro to OS X Maverick 10.9.1.  Everything was functioning fine.  Then, I decided to purchase the iphoto upgrade so I can take advantage of the icloud feature.  After I did this, my entire iphoto library was replaced by a folder called Recoverd iPhoto Library.  The vast majority of my many photos were missing.  I have been backing up onto a hard drive regularly.  When I went to restore my iPhoto library, it told me that it couldn't be restored because there is not enough space on my laptop.  In fact, my entire hard drive is smaller than the size of the iPhoto library on my G-slim drive.  When I try to restore, it tells me that there is not enough space.  But yesterday it was all on my mac.  How is this possible and how do I get these pictures back onto my laptop?  Is there a way to restore my entire system to a previous date?  Thanks!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
