OS X :: Can TimeMachine Restore Just One User Profile Instead Of Everything

Dec 4, 2010

what I am trying to do is to take my wife's profile from my iMac and restore it to a MacBook Pro. But the MacBook Pro already has my profile on it and I don't want to screw it up. I'd like to just add her profile to the MBP.

Is there a way in TimeMachine to restore just an individual profile from one machine to another?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't See TimeMachine Restore Interface

Apr 13, 2012

running OS X Lion, and try to backup to a Stora NAS with Time Machine. Have (as so many others) struggled to get it to work, now it seems OK, I have a full backup, and two incrementals have run OK.But the restore GUI! I did have it up and working some time during all my backup tries. But now I can't get it to display. I press the "Go into Time Machine" from the TM symbol on the menu bar. I get the connect to disk progess bar, and it seems to succeed, because I see an icon on my desktop "TimeMachine backups" and in  Finder I get the Time Machine entry under Devices. But how do I get nice GUI to be able to browse back in time and restore? When I saw it before, I can't even remember what I did to get there, it just appeared... But not now...

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 :: How To Restore 10.6 Default Display Profile

Nov 26, 2009

I'm looking for a easy way to restore my 1st gen Core Duo MacBook (10.6.2)'s display profile to the original 10.6.2 profile. (Whatever that may be)

The color seems to be washed away somewhat dry looking. I have another one of the same laptops, and the display's colors seems far sharper and brighter.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: User Profile Not Saving Any Preference Changes

Apr 22, 2012

I have a secondary user account who's preferences will not save. I have tried making it an administrator, but that hasn't seemed to help. The dock changes oringinally weren't saving, and I deleted the plist file, but that was a one time fix. I made changes once, and it only saved them once. Also, I have an application (Steam) that has been set to open when the user signs on. I have tried removing this program both through its own preferences panel, and also through the Start-Up items menu in the user preferences on the computer, and neither one is working.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Restore Admin Account Profile

Aug 24, 2014

I hadn't used my notebook for about a week and when I turned it on the other day the password login page was missing and I noticed that the Administrator Account is also missing. I have tried to delete the two remaining accounts to see what would happen, but either I can't remember my ID name or the system won't let me delete the accounts because the admin is missing. 

I have tried my Snow Leopard CD but it won't let me reinstall or run diagnostic.

OS X :: Deleting User Account And Creating Another Admin Profile?

Jun 4, 2010

I bought this Macbook Pro (10.6.3) second hand and the user account was the name of the guy I bought it from. I'm tired of always seeing his name pop up when I have to access my Home folder and since the only way to change that is to create another admin profile thats what I'm going to do. Once mine is up and running I will delete the old account but first I have a question. Is there a way I can transfer over things like my Admin accounts and History, My Applemail email addresses and history and my Firefox settings, plugins etc., without having to duplicate them?

OS X Mavericks :: Can Switch Admin Rights To A Different User Profile

Nov 30, 2014

I'm running Mavericks on a MacBook Pro. Right now I operate everything under the admin user profile. It has been suggested that I should not be operating all of my daily work using the admin account, I should be using a standard user account, and the admin should remain for admin purposes only. Is it possible to switch the admin rights to a different user account, and then I keep the account I've been working in, have all software and preferences loaded in and make it a standard account? Or can I duplicate my admin account and use the duplicated user account for working in, and the original as the admin? Trying to keep from having to reload all software, passwords, copy work, etc. Since I don't understand this fully, not sure how to accomplish this.

MacBook :: System Taking Long To Load User Profile Login

Mar 28, 2010

My Macbook has been running pretty slowly recently but only at log in. Its been taking ages to load my name at the top of if you try anything before is loaded my user profile I guess it just crashed. Also every now and again the wallpaper doesnt load up. Anyway to fix this is booted into safe-mode, verified the disk and repaired the permission. My work insists I use McAfee enterprise edition for Mac if connecting their servers so I am also protected from viruses and mal-ware. Its just got worse. And stranger still Safari still loads but thats all. Any other program will bounce a few times and then do nothing. Even mail, pages, dreamweaver, terminal, settings - everything. Safari is the only working program I have found that actually still loads. The internet connection works find and everything else. McAfee is sitting in my status bar so I am guessing that has also loaded properly.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create A New Profile And Basically Move All Documents Over To The New Established Profile?

Apr 19, 2012

I've mitigated my profile from my older iMini to my new iMini.  Everything worked out fine but I've noticed that [on the new imini] I have to input my password twice.  Once I log on and input my password, my profile comes up and ask me again to input the password.  I also have a unsecured startup deice/item (display) message displayed once the system comes up. Can I create a new profile and basically move all my documents over to the new established profile.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Remove A User "profile"?

May 6, 2012

My daughter has to turn back into her school a macbook she has used for class-related work. She has also stored her itunes music, personal photos and logs in to social networking sites (i.e., facebook) on this machine.

We think we know how to remove her music and photos, but what is the "recommended" best way to remove all traces of her personal use on this machine short of reformating the hard drive. For instance, she doesn't want the next user to somehow be able to login to her facebook account if the teacher doesn't do the proper wipe of her use before next semester.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Move Profile Data To New Profile?

Apr 5, 2012

my system fonts are jacked up and fill in lines in Safari are not readable as the text is bigger than the fil in window. Also my laptop is running harder, hotter and the battery life is less than half of what it should be. I also get text overlap line to line sometimes in Safari. 

I have restored my OS with a clean install and then recovered my profile from Time Machine, this is how I discovered its my profile. I added a clean profile the first time I rebuilt the mac and it ran much faster, with less hardware usage and longer battery life. Once I began to recover my profile the system was same as always slow with Safari issues mentionee earlier. I switched to the temp user account profile and the system is fast no Safari issues and less intensive activity going on, battery life good etc.  

If I rebuild the mac again I am not able to recover the profile/account without issues, I would like to move just what I need to a new profile/account from Time Machine but it doesn't allow access to the original admin account for a selective restore. I would like to be much more granular about the restore and just move my documents and such. I don't want to recover the applications or application data at this point as I don't need it. I would rather re-install just the apps I need at this time. Other option would be to clean my account/profile so that it runs as it should or move everything I want (mostly documents)  to a new profile for improved use.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Restore User Without A .dmg

May 3, 2012

I inadvertantly deleted a user that has some needed information.  I did not elect to to create a compressed version of the user (wish I had) but I also didn't tell it to delete the user immediately. I selected "don't change the home folder" when deleting the user.  I know where the user home folder is but I cannot access it.  I am also nearly certain that the data is still intact because the Hard drive is far too full to be explained by my current user data.

I deleted my user file Macintosh HD/Users/MY USER NAME.

How can I get it back? I used data rescue 2 but it didn't get the folders it was in or the file names and I have about 300 files on my desktop so I can't rename everything. I also have a iPhone and I and I want to know if everything on it will be deleted at the next sync (Contacts, songs, videos, Photos, Apps) if I can't get my files back because some of my song aren't backup so my iTunes won't be the same as the last time I sync my iPhone (My iPhone is Jailbroken.)

OS X V10.4 :: Restore A Broken User After A System-Recovery?

Jun 26, 2012

I recently tried upgrading my PowerMac G4 from Mac OS X Tiger to Leopard, but the Mac crashed in the process and all seemed lost. However, with a system recovery, I managed to get everything back. At least, almost everything. I still had to create a new account, and this account was missing the addresses from the previous account in Addressbook. Addressbook was empty. Addressbook used to be filled with addresses from 2 accounts. I managed to recover the addresses from one account, but the other seems inaccesible. I tried restoring the account. Empty. I tried copying the files and giving myself read/write permissions. Nothing. I tried showing hidden files.Nothing. How do I recover this account/the addresses from Adressbook (I don't really care about the other files on the account).
