OS X V10.7 Lion :: Re Install Lion & Then Install Itunes + Docs + IPhoto From Time Machine?

Apr 12, 2012

Ever since I downloaded iplayer - my mac has been running slow. I have followed a few tips to remove it and all other related files - but it still runs low (spinning wheel of death) and now pdf's dont download correctly (I guess I have deleted too much). 

My ideal would be to start from scrach - although I want to keep my itunes and iphotos files as well as my documents. Is there a way to reload back to factory settings then add selected programs and folders from timemachine? I am in the process of timemachine backing up everything now.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Linking An Old Time Machine Backup With A Fresh Install?

Mar 31, 2012

I recently wiped/installed Lion on my hard drive and I'm trying to figure out how to link my old time machine back ups to my time capsule. I haven't gotten the oft quoted dialogue box that lets you link it to the new install. Does anyone know how I can manually force this to happen? I've already started a fresh backup, but I'm fine losing what's been backed up so far.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Install IPhoto 9.0 On It?

Mar 27, 2012

I am trying to find a way to re-install iPhoto via Lion. I am fully aware that iPhoto was intially intended for Snow Leopard with the last in version 9.0, and Lion was the first update with 9.0.1.

Here's my dillema, iPhoto somehow got corrupted, and refuses to upload into screen. I had to take down the corrupt app, and now I can't upload iPhoto unless if I have version 9 active. How do I re-install version 9 (a clean version)? I ask, cause I wish to safely obtain all the software necessary for my MACBook.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apps Relaunch, Docs Reopen After Launch Machine?

Feb 14, 2012

I close all my programs before shutting down. Since installing Lion, programs I used recently relaunch when I start up the machine, sometimes the next day. No, I don't have "Start on Login" selected for these apps in the dock. Another weird thing:  I selected a Word document to open, the app launched and the last document I was in also opened, even though I didn't select it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: System Crashing All The Time After Recent Install

Mar 9, 2012

I finally narrow down my computer issue and it is not related to Spotlight or either the Time Machine, it is something else that is crashing and causing the drop of speed. I have enclosed the crash report and the activity monitor to give a better idea of my computer.

My system resources:
- HD with over 300Gb of space
- 8Gb of RAM (most of the time 4Gb RAM free)

I have plenty of computer and resources and it isn't a issue related to hardware but software. There is something in the processing that still going on that I do not know.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Deletes ITunes TV Shows

Feb 21, 2012

I've set up time machine on my new mac, it all seemed to be working well. I have a WD external hard drive 500GB (my estimated backup size is about 50GB). I have all my media on another WD hard drive, this is not in scope for back up. I run time machine and it all goes well. Just after a few weeks I noticed that some of my TV shows were missing from iTunes, when I actually check the files on the external hard drive they are missing, they are also not in the trash. I wasn't sure what was causing this but this happened a few times. Eventually I turned off time machine and now I don't have the issue anymore.

OS X :: Time Machine Restore After Clean SL Install?

Oct 31, 2009

I'm going to reinstall Snow Leopard from scratch for the 6th time since I bought my MBP, which is a little over a month. Why? Constant freezes, lockups, beach balls (OMG I HATE THOSE DAMN THINGS). So I just want to start fresh... again again again again again again.

My question: if I restore from my Time Machine backup after I install Snow Leopard, what will happen? My SL DVD is 10.6. If I restore, will it go to 10.6.1? How is all of this going to work? I could just start completely clean and manually transfer my files from the Time Machine drive to where they usually are and be happy.

OS X :: Time Machine Not Integrated With ITunes IPhoto

Mar 27, 2010

When I have iTunes in focus and enter Time Machine, it opens a Finder window behind iTunes, brings it into focus, then goes into Time Machine for Finder. Same with iPhoto. The only thing that seems to work properly is Mail (I can have it in focus, enter Time Machine, and use the Mail interface to restore e-mail).

OS X :: Clean Re-install But Restore Files From Time Machine?

Oct 1, 2010

So my hard-drive died. Luckily I have a Time Machine backup of my system. I bought a new HD and tried to restore from the backup. No-go. It complains that it can't restore certain file, so it snorts the restore. I tried an older backup, no help.

So I decided to do a fresh install instead. But once I have OS up & running again, can I restore files from my old Time Machine backup? How does the process work? I'm afraid if I point Time Machone to my old backup, it will overwrite it.

I do have my files backed up manually as well, so I can always copy them by hand. Bit that backup is not as recent as the TM backup.
