I'm afraid of spyware or other unsolicited suftware being installed previously on my computer with OSX 10.5, so I just did a fresh install of Mountain Lion OSX 10.8.
I have a time machine backup of my old 10.5.
I want to restore only emails, photos and documents.... everything else I want a fresh start.
If I use Migration Assistant, I need to choose applications in order to restore emails.... but that would also restore many other applications that I don't want.
I have bought a new copy of most of the software I need to be installed, so I just want to restore emails, photos and documents.
If I activate Time Machine, it will erase the disk I already have and start from scratch backing up on it.... I would like to use the backup I have to selectively restore certain areas....
Can somebody help!!
This is the Leopard forum. You would get a faster answer on the Mountain Lion forum.
