OS X :: Finding Best Way To Restore?

Sep 6, 2009

I am a former Acer user. On my old Acer notebook when I had to restore, it contained a partition. So all I had to do was drag and drop my important files to that little spot in the corner of the HD and everything ELSE would be erased, and my files would be safe when it was done.

MacBook :: Finding Way To Restore The Original Shape?

Aug 29, 2009

My macbook is a few months old and fell. It happened so fast, I'm not even sure what happened. I picked it up, lost my balance, and... After I stopped screaming, I realized that it still turns on and seems to work fine.. For that I am grateful. However, because of how it has dented, the upper left corner grinds upon closing and opening. It is dented in three places, evidently, 'hopped' when I dropped it. If the lid is closed, its dented on the upper left hand corner which luckily didn't break the screen but did affect how the lid opens and closes. It dented slightly on the other side as well but not enough to grate on that side when it closes. Any way to bend these dents out so that it won't 'grate' when closing and opening?

OS X :: Unable To Do Time Machine Restore / Calculating Space Required To Restore Data

Jun 19, 2009

How long should I be stuck on the screen "calculating space required to restore data"? I've been on this screen for about 20, 30 minutes. The "hash mark wheel" is spinning, but just not seeing anything new. Is this normal? My backed up data is ~100 GB.

Mac Mini :: 2011 Will Not Restore Via Internet Restore?

Apr 8, 2012

So here's my question:I've owned my share of MacBook Pro's, so I'm somewhat familiar, but not an expert. I got my mini last Friday from cowboom (a Best Buy affiliate), and since it's a pre-owned, it only came with the power cable and HDMI to DV-I adapeter.  For those that ordered these, a majority of the people posted that it did not come with an OS, but the Internet Restore option fixed the trick.  So I powered it on and got the flashing folder with the question mark. No OS. I did the Internet recovery and ran it through all the way to the the reinstall Lion screen. When asking what drive to install it on, there were no drives. I closed the installer and ran the disk utility and the only available drive was some basic drive that had a capacity less than 2GB. No other drives. I booted from my Lion that's on USB, but there's no drive to install it on. Any suggestions? I checked the warranty and the warranty cannot be verified. Some buyers said they had warranty from 8 months and up.  One said his warranty showed starting from the day he restored his mac.  I'm guessing because it was never registered I made an appointment tomorrow to take it to apple but is there something that can help avoid the trip?

OS X :: How To Restore Leopard

Dec 1, 2010

In an attempt to mount an external hard drive onto my iMac, I attempted to put in the original install disk (10.4.7) and re-installed my OS. I was upgraded to Leopard but now I accidentally re-installed Tiger. When re-installing it told me that Leopard would be saved under "Previous System" or something like that. I've looked for this folder or a way to restore my system but nothing has worked. I was not using Time Machine. All of my applications (such as Final Cut) are still there, but "cannot be opened on this OS".

How can I do this on my Mac?

I don't have the discs it came with, nor can I get new ones.

Restoring not only the LastSession.plist, but also all its peers, from Time Machine does not seem to fix the issue.This being Apple, there must be an easy and systematic way to restore Safari to its exact pre-quit (or pre-crash) state?

OS X :: Restore Library From Backup

Oct 9, 2009

My friend told me the above happened to her. She has all old pictures, but nothing from this month. This occurred after she got a message asking if she wanted to update the library -- this message came from out of the blue and she answered yes. I am trying to restore the library from a backup, but every time it tries to restore it says there is no permission to access the iphoto library. When I click on get info I see that she has read and write permission, but still she gets the message. Can I change the permissions on a time machine file? She is using Iphoto 9 and Snow Leopard.

OS X :: Restore From TC Onto Two Internal Drives?

Nov 5, 2010

First replace the Optical drive (superdrive is superdead) in my 2007 macbook with a SSD, probably a 128-240GBish, the current internal drive is a 5400rpm 500GB. I want to install the OS and a couple of the main programs I use on the SSD. The main question is what will the the time capsule do when trying to restore to the (smaller GB )SSD if the backup image (currently around 400 GB) is from the 500GB. Is there a better way to go about this? The HDD has about 100GB available. If there is a forum on this let me know.

Mac Pro :: Restore Files After Sync?

Nov 17, 2010

I have a MacPro 4.1. All my apps are on an SSD off the 2nd Optical drive. I have started using "Chronosync" to back up the data on the main hard drives to a drobo.

I have searched the Chronosync site and sent an email on my problem, but no luck with a reply. I was thinking that regardless of which back up software used, the problem would be the same

I want to reconfigure the data drives and they need to be wiped (they are currently RAID 0 and I don't want this any more).

The question is; when I want to restore the data files that I backed up off the drobo, back onto my MacPro:

1) Do I just drag the files back from the drobo across?

2) If yes, then will apps like... iMovie / iWeb / iTunes etc - which have "links" to different media: will those links be broken? (Remember, SSD with apps won't be touched, just the data they are accessing).

3) If links will be broken... any way to fix this problem? (easily! )
