Hope someone can help.


I recently had my macbook updated to  OS X 10.7.4 Lion from Snow Leopard (actually, the tech support people at Best Buy did this for me without asking, but I'm okay with it). Before the update, I did a full backup of the hard drive to an external drive using Time Machine. When the macbook was given back to me, it was wiped clean and I started from scratch.


I plugged in the external drive, did a "Browse other backup disks" under time machine, and pressed restore on the back-up. The computer took a few hours to do what I thought was restoring 200 GB worth of files to the computer.


But, when I went to look for them using Lion finder, they're nowhere to be found. When I get info on the internal hard drive, there is 200+ GB of space being used, so I know something got downloaded onto it. I just can't figure out where all the files went.


Please help!



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
