Recently my hard drive crashed, luckily I backed up everything on my Seagate Slim external hard drive. I tried restoring everything back to my Macbook but I do not have access to my documents that I backed up before giving my laptop away for repairing. This is what it looks like:
How do I restore all of this? I used Time Machine to back up. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Ok since the store setup a temporary user name, you can log in as that user and add your user account (as Admin) via System Preferences / Users & Groups. Make sure in Users & Groups you click on Login Options and set the Automatic Login to Off. This way you can select the user account and password you want to use to log in.
Log out of the temp account and log in with your user account that you setup. Now try and bring over your data. What happens?
