Ok, so...


While I was backing up my HD with Time Capsule the other day, it started to fail (yes, irony abounds).


So, I have a great repair shop trying to recover my data and I did get a new HD and clean install of Lion (what I was using before the failure), but I don't have a complete Time Capsule backup.


What I do have is an older drag-and-drop copy of my User folder and almost all of my apps, but I am not sure in what order to do the following and if I am missing any steps:


1. Run Software Update

2. Drag my old User Folder over (and if I should so this as one big drop or piece by piece).

3. Update Apps


Is there something I am missing?
