    New to OS X myself but a friend needs assistance with upgrading and I'm not the best at this....

    She downloaded and installed 10.8.2 yesterday, but she had OS X 10.5.8 on her system. She is now having issues with software. I looked up best I could that one cannot upgrade from 10.5 to 10.8.2 unless one upgrades from 10.5 to 10.6 first, and so on. Is that correct ?

    Can she do a Command + R, restore her system without losing her files ?

    Thank you to anyone in the know....
