Hi. I backed everything onto external HD using TM prior to reinstalling Leopard. Now that I have come to restore my files I find that my music and photos are incomplete, and have returned as they were transferred from my old Mac a few months ago. I cannot find music and photos added since. Any advice much appreciated.

    You didn't confirm that all your music and photo files were transferred to your current Mac? If so, how do you know your new Mac's TM backup isn't complete? TM certainly can't back up files that aren't there. What problem were you trying to solve by reinstalling Leopard on your new Mac?

    Reinstalled Leopard

    How did you reinstall - Archive and install - Erase and Install ?
