... including files saved by timemachine?  I've had a lot of computer problems, first wiped the drive.  It was a chore getting old folders like "desktop" and "downloads" to open for me with my new username and for some reason I wasn't permitted by the system to use the OLD username.  I had to go to every folder and every item in every folder and reset permissions.

 

Now, it seems, I need a new drive.  Which means I have to do all those things AGAIN!  Plus re-install software.

 

Is there a terminal command that will let me access old timemachine drives (plural) with (unfortunately) multiple usernames?

 

Please don't lecture me!  I know I've been hopelessly stupid and inefficient.  I promise to do better.  At least I DID back up.
