Applications :: Restored New IMac With Time Machine And Now IWeb Will Not Open?

Apr 15, 2010

I upgraded my iMac to the new i5 and sold my 24" iMac. Before selling it, I backed everything up with Time Machine. I transferred everything to the i5 and I thought everything was working fine until I tried to open iWeb and it didn't work. If I move my domain file from the iWeb folder, iWeb opens fine and starts from scratch. When I check my website online it is still active as well. How can I get my original domain file to open within iWeb so all is not lost?

OS X :: Migration With Time Machine Only Restored System Apps?

Nov 25, 2009

I had some computer issues the other day that ended up requiring an erase/install of 10.5. So I reinstalled and when asked if I wanted to transfer data told it to use a Time Machine backup. I then ran Software Update to get all the updates. What I noticed was in my Applications folder only the standard set of Apple apps were there. No iLife apps, Adobe CS, etc were migrated over. I'm in the process of testing copying iPhoto from the backup. Is there a reason non-Apple apps are excluded from migration? I understand some installers, Adobe in particular, places files elsewhere in the system that might not be migrated properly. Also my Downloads folder is non-existent too and will need use TM again on it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Restored Wrong Data

Mar 25, 2012

OK - the history here is the previous Macbook was replaced because of system problems, including many files with FUTURE dates (eg. 2037). Apple store agreed after repeated issues, they would replace the machine. We did a final time machine/capsule backup before taking it in. 

Got the new Macbook and ran the Migration assistant to restore all data from the time capsule. The data was not correct, and I suspect it was something to do with the future dates. 

I can open the sparse bundle backup file and see the correct backup information, but I have no option when I open Time Machine to pick ANY previous backups. This all started with Macbook problem, and I'm really thinking they should figure this out - but assuming they wont, how to safely get the 'real' information recovered from Time Capsule.   

PS - OS X Lion on both systems - Macbook Pro 15" i7, 750GB

OS X :: Leopard Install Disc In And Restored To Time Machine Volume?

Sep 2, 2009

I use a lot of plug ins for music production in Logic. Like an idiot, i upgraded to snow leopard, after having this problem with the upgrade to leopard from tiger. Of course half of my plug ins dont work.So i Time Machine backed up everything on my HD. I put my old leopard install disc in and restored to my Time Machine volume. It took about 2 and a half hours.

At the end of that, it asks you to restart, and i do and as soon as the apple pops up on the off-white screen, kernel panic and i have to restart. this is never ending
Ive tried repairing and verifying disk permissions from the leopard disc of my HD and still nothing.My final guess would be to just do a clean install of Leopard and then restore from time machine again. This seems SUPER risky to me as there are TONS of important project session files that i CANT afford to lose.Everything is backed up on my Time Machine drive, im still just a little nervous about doing this.Anyone have any other ideas and does this sound like a secure plan?

OS X :: Restored To Blank Drive From Time Machine - Couple Odd Things?

Aug 14, 2010

So I replaced my hard drive with a brand new bigger one, booted to the DVD of Snow Leopard with my Time Machine disk plugged in as well, and did the partition and then restore steps. No, I didn't have to install MacOS X first and then migrate. I restored right from backup. Mostly worked awesomely.

Couple oddities that maybe folks here have answers for:That first step (setting that 1 partition), which I think handled the formatting as well was SUPER fast. I expected it would have to take hours for a 320gig drive. Took minutes. Do drives no longer require low-level surface formatting?My desktop background was lost. No biggie - I re-found the picture and set it.I now have a "Private" folder visible in finder that didn't used to be there. It has underneath it the following folders: etc, tftpboot, tmp, var. What's this?

MacBook :: Switched HD's And Restored From Time Machine Backup - Apps Broken

As the title said, I've upgraded my HD and restored my system from a Time Machine backup, but now I'm having trouble with some apps either failing to open (when I click them, I get message saying "[app name] quit unexpectedly"), or some apps opening but then coming up with the same error when I try and click anything - these apps also drive the CPU usage right up while they're running.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Are All Programs / Configuration Settings Restored From A Time Machine Backup

Apr 30, 2012

The hardrive in my late 2006 Macbook 2.0ghz laptop has finally kicked the bucket.  I confirmed this with an Apple Genius at my local Apple store after she plugged in an external drive and running disk utility to run a diagnostic. However, I forgot to ask her about some details concerning my time machine backup which resides on an external drive that connects via firewire.  I do know that my files and folders should be restored without issues.  Although, I'm not sure about the following: 

1.  Will all my non-apple applications / programs be restored?

2.  Will my configuration settings for mail be restored?

3.  Will my itunes settings be restored (I have an iphone and ipad that connects to itunes)?

4.  Will my contacts in address book be restored? 

I still have the original drive of this laptop which still works just fine and boots up okay (never erased the OS) where the upgraded drive that I installed a few years ago is the one that failed. Therefore, I will be reverting back to the original drive that is smaller and slower. 

The Genius recommended to run disk utility from the Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD (I originally had Leopard installed) to format the drive/install the OS and then do a full restore from my time machine backup.  Although, I'm not sure if all my programs and settings for certain apps will be restored.  I appreciate any help or other optioins I can possibly do to get back my saved files, programs, and settings.

After reinstall of OS X 10.7.4, I restored an older copy from Time Machine backup. I want to completely replace the current "Macintosh HD" folder with the folder that TM put inside it.

Applications :: Open HTML Files In IWeb?

Nov 26, 2009

I have a group of students who want to use iWeb to create a website to show off some of their art work for university interviews. They have been creating the site and saving it before logging off a machine. They have been wanting to do more work on their websites, but have found no sign of the pages they created when they log into a machine and load up iWeb. Initially I thought it was because they were logging in on a machine different to the one that they had started creating the site on, so I got them to log onto the original machine, but still nothing. I then got them to export the files to HTML and then to re-open them in iWeb, but it won't let you do that. Any suggestions on how I may solve this problem? The students have network accounts, rather than stand-alone machines that they work on, so I know it's something to do with that.

MacBook Pro :: Time Machine Won't Open

Mar 4, 2012

On my MacBook I've had Time Machine backing up to an external USB hard drive for a good while now. At some point in the past, the interface to recover files has stopped working; I can click "Enter Time Machine" but literally nothing happens. No errors, no windows open, nothing. I've tried some things I found in other places to no avail, but most of them are associated with some kind of error code, which probably means that it isn't the same problem I have.

OS X :: Time Machine Backup File Unable To Open

Sep 11, 2010


I recently used time machine for the first time in a long time. I use my external HD USB for the backup. After the back up was complete, I unplugged the USB cable. I got an error that I needed to put the HD away first (I wasn't thinking). And I didn't pay attention to the error either.

I thought the data was gone, when I didnt see the data in the back up file. I do see the back up file with that date on it. In the file is the .InProgress file. In that file, on right clicking, I see the contents of one folder. This folder has a very long name of numbers and letters. It shows no contents in the finder. THough I know the files must be here. The HD has capacity of 100 Gig. There is only about 20 gigs showing on it. Though there is only 20 gigs available. So, my back up data is there on the HD, and I assume it's in this "empty" file.

* How do I extract the saved files ?
