Ok 1) my last time machine backup was 2 weeks ago 2) I have working on serveral college essays 3) I never have had leopard this 13" base macbook pro came with snow leopard , bought less than 2 months ago. 4)will data recovary get it back? 5) should I go to the apple store (the CS rep told me too) but I have other somewhat questionable files and such all over the old account, I feel a total loss of privacy. What can they possibly do that i cant. I feel like the phone rep knew less than I did about the bug. 6) I am very upset with apple. 7) My account basically turned into a guest account, i had a guest on the laptop but figured since I never had the original leopard I was fine.
