    Well, not all of iLife. I only use iPhoto and iMovie for my website. I'm using 09' right now. My question is, and since Apple doesn't have a help section for this up yet, I was wondering if you guys knew...

    If I download '11 iMovie and iPhoto and then have to restore my machine for whatever reasons will the App Store allow me to re-download '11 from the App Store?

    They will, but it is always wise to have an incremental back up of you Mac.

    Every time I've ever used Time Machine to back-up my computer it's restored with all kinds of problems. So I just back-up my iMovie Projects, iPhoto Library and iTunes folders.

    This is the exact oposite to what I have experienced.

    Have you had a look at Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper?

    I haven't. Each time I have ever done a Time Machine back-up there is all sorts of things missing. This has happened to me on multiple macs, too. So I'm a bit leery of it. I'll give these a look into, thanks.
