ok, big problem here. upgraded to panther (from 10.2.8) and backed up data on dvd's. problem is my wife is a different user and while her "documents" folder copied over to the disk (and i can see the folders and files) the folders were apparently "read only" and won't copy back to the hard drive. they're scrambled(?) i originally thought the dvd was damaged but that is not the case. it's permissions. question is what to do now. 1) i could try to use diskwarrior to rebuild the available portions of the harddrive to retreive files (but i installed 10.3.3 on it) 2) her documents really want the old operating system. i have the "library" and everything else from the old os backed up except the "system". 3) any other ideas? your help would be greatly appreciated.
