    Hi,

    I recently (finally) upgraded to Jaguar. I found some things to be alot slower that prior to the upgrade. So I decided to tar up everything I wanted to keep and do a clean install, reformatting the hard drive. the speed difference was extremely significant. The only problem i have encountered was with imovie. I had tarred up a couple movie projects, but when i put them back onto the machine and untarred them imovie no longer recognizes them as movie projects. Anyone know why, or how I can correct it?

    thanks,
    Wes

    Meta Data

    Tar does not respect meta data (file creator codes) in the resource fork. There are numerous programs on VT to sort this.
