OS X :: Can I Move Files And Programs From A Backup To A Computer Without Having To Restore

Jul 22, 2009

Is it possible to move my files and programs that I have backed up on a Time Capsule to my computer without having to restore from a backup?

I had to get my hard drive replaced on my Macbook (running OS 10.5.7) but on all of my backups "Preview" is missing (was somehow deleted when I installed Gimp).

Every time I restore from a backup Preview is gone. Is it possible for me to move all of my files and programs to my MacBook without restoring from a backup?

MacBook Pro :: How To Restore IPhone From Backup From Different Computer

Aug 30, 2014

My girlfriend had her iPhone 5 sent in to repair the sleep/wake button and have the battery replaced, and before we left I made a full back up to her MacBook Pro.  A few days later the MacBook won't boot up and only displays a blank grey screen. I took the MacBook into the Apple store since this is the only way to restore her photos and music and the Genius diagnosed it as a Logic Board failure and as it is out of warranty, would be quite expensive to fix. If I mounted the hard drive to an external enclosure, is it possible to pull the backup files and restore her phone with a laptop running windows?

MacBook Pro :: Restore Timemachine Backup To New Computer From NAS Drive?

Mar 28, 2012

I want to verify if Migration Assistant will restore a backup from NAS drive to a new computer. I just got a WD My Book Live Duo NAS drive which supports Time Machine backups for Lion (and Snow Leopard). Unlike backups in Snow Leopard and the WD My Book World Edition (white light), the new NAS drive creates a sparsebundle the first time a backup is initiated.  When I open Time Machine, a single volume for my backup appears. I have 3 Macbooks backing up to this drive but when I open Time Machine on any computer, only the backup created for that computer is shown.  This raised a question for me that if my computer dies, how do I restore the backup from the NAS drive to the new computer?  Is this what Migration Assistant will do?  What are the limitations?  Does the new computer have to have the same IP address as the old computer?  Can I select what gets restored?

OS X :: Time Machine Backup Will Restore The New Laptop With All The Old Laptops Files?

Mar 17, 2009

apple is sending me a replacement UMBP. I'm keeping the current one until the replacement arrives and then using a time machine backup on the new one. My time machine backup will restore the new laptop with all the old laptops files, programs, preferences, emails, everything as the old laptop's drive was without having to reinstall everything? Correct?I guess I could always swap drives as well, that might be quicker.

Software :: Unable To Move Unwanted Files To Recycle Bin - Computer Hangs

Aug 13, 2009

I tried to move a load of unwanted iTunes files to the recycling bin, but missed! They duly loaded onto the desktop, then the computer hung (there were only about 3,000 of them, by the way!) What can I do to put my little baby's desktop right? On a related issue, my recently purchased G5 dual desktop refuses to acknowledge my G4 (which is in firewire 'target disk' mode') I have connected 6 pin to 6 pin.

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.
