I am trying to restore my info using time machine. I am switching from a Core duo with an 80 GB HD to a Core 2 duo with a 320 GB HD. When I use Migration I get my apps but I do not get my mail, photos or itunes. if I try to access my time machine backups to tranfer manually I get a message saying "Peparing to copy" and the number of items being prepared just keeps going up! I mean like 10,000 to 40,000+ items!      Its obviouslly trying to tranfer everything on the external HD

     Does anyone know why I am not getting all my info with migration or why I can't just copy one small folder with out dumping the whole contents of the Ext. HD into one folder. I'm obviouslly doing something major wrong.

     I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
