Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2008 6:33 AM (in response to joecun)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?Dual Processor 2.5GHz G5, 15-inch MacBook Pro 1.83GHz, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2008 7:07 AM (in response to Stanley Horwitz)Reinstalled Leopard because of frequent freezing unresponsive to other tips gleaned from the fora. This does seem to have been a success. All music and photos were transferred from my old to my current Mac. The problem is that it is only those which were transferred that I can now find on TM; all that I have added since I can't find. Would they be stored separately? I assumed-perhaps wrongly-that everything within iTunes and iPhoto would be backed-up together.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 24inch, 2GB RAM, 2.4GHz Intel

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

Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2008 9:16 AM (in response to joecun)Have finally stumbled upon the answer; I had inadvertently been operating under slightly different usernames pre- and post- transfer to new computer, hence files stored separately. Have now recovered my stuff. Thanks for your consideration.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 24inch, 2GB RAM, 2.4GHz Intel
