    So I had to wipe and reinstall Mac OSX.5 (or at least the Apple store genius did). I backed it up just before I took it, and now I am trying to restore completely from the login selection (restore from a time machine backup).

    It recognizes my time capsule, and my time machine drive, and it goes to the window where it asks you to choose what to transfer: "User name, network and preferences, applications folder, and finally my files and folders" At first it said "calculating..." for all of them, but all of them except the applications folder finished. It has been over 3 hours and the applications folder is STILL "Calculating" and will NOT let me select transfer.

    What is going on here, anyone know?

    Did you try restarting and trying it again?

    I had to to that for one of my restores, not sure why.

    The first time it said it had completed yet when it restarted it would just power off everytime it was powered up.... 6 hours after another restore it finally worked but my original problems have come along with the restore.

    Thanks for your help

    What original problems?

    TM can't fix problems unless you known when the problem was created.
