    Hi, maybe someone here can help me out. Let me first explain the situation.

    A couple weeks ago, my hard drive failed. Thankfully, I had everything still intact via Carbon Copy Cloner with a bootable backup on my external hard drive. CCC created this backup through a file-level transfer (as opposed to a block-level transfer), and now that the time has finally come to use this backup for survival, I have an issue.

    While yes, the hard drive is working and the OS is booting perfectly, any application I open will crash. This is everything from the Applications folder to Utilities... it doesn't matter where it's located, it won't open. I tried installing a couple applications from their disk images to see if I could get around it, and while they would go through Installer, I couldn't open after they'd be put on the hard drive.

    Whenever I attempt to open a program, it briefly opens, and then crashes, leaving the usual crash report dialog. The more detailed analysis states the following (as in the case of Safari):


    Code:
    Process:         Safari (613)
    Path:            /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari
    Identifier:      com.apple.Safari
    Version:         3.1 (5525.13)
    Build Info:      WebBrowser-55251300~1
    Code Type:       X86 (Native)
    Parent Process:  launchd (137)
    
    Date/Time:       2008-06-13 05:08:42.673 -0500
    OS Version:      Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C7010)
    Report Version:  6
    
    Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x000000003a223610
    Crashed Thread:  6

    The report then goes into a long series of Threads...


    So does anyone have any suggestions for me to make this bootable copy actually useable?
    Thanks.
