As of now, I've got 10.6.8 installed, and when upgrading to Lion, I plan to do a clean install. I'm trying to foresee any issues I might run in to. - Can I restore what I want from a Time Machine backup (using Migration Assistant)? Documents, photos, music, applications and still gaining from having a clean install rather than just upgrading? - I've got iWork'08, and iLife'08. They came preinstalled, and I don't think I have got any install DVD's. The only of these I have bought from app store, is the new iPhoto. Can I restore these from my Time Machine backup, or is there some place on Apple's web pages I can download them? They are at the least registered in my name. - If I DO NOT use Migration assistant to access the backup, is there then any way to access things like Key chain access? Also, I have heard some complaints about problems with the rights to iPhoto library when doing this manually. Thankyou in advance..!
