Last night, I performed a "clean install" and zero'd out my hard drive/installed Lion. The majority of my files were backed up manually, but my documents and music were backed up on my Time Machine. So when Lion asked me to transfer my files from Time Machine, I declined it because I wanted to try it later. I created a new user account with the same name and password (etc). I played around with Lion and it was blazingly fast... like starting anew! Then, when I finally got used to Lion, I used Migration Assistant to transfer my documents and music... but they told me I couldn't have two accounts with the same account name. So I did the whole process AGAIN - installed Lion once again (etc). I transferred from Time Machine my user profile and "Other Files and Folders in Macintosh HD" (which I still don't know what it is ...) I did not transfer my settings or applications. Well, after finally transferring everything, I begin using Lion and find out that my computer still has its old settings. For example, my dock still has my old dock settings (I see a question mark over deleted apps/not the default Lion dock that I saw last time), Dashboard still has old widgets, my bookmarks are all intact (I was going to transfer them anyway, but seeing all of them there makes me feel like I simply upgraded?). I know this has something to do with me transferring my user account... but is there any way to simply keep my documents/pictures/music etc. but not the settings? I thought I'd simply have what I had before I restored from TM just with my files. I feel like since I transferred the Library folder, it pretty much was pointless and not a true clean install. What do I do? Is there any way other than to redo the whole process to fix this? Do I just need to clean my library folder? Thanks! Any tip helps.
