then I discovered my Apple Time Capsule had died!!!! I called Apple and they told me to take it in the the Apple store, who (genius) told me to take it to MacMall, that Apple doesn't do data recovery. From the Mac Mall data recovery, files, I think I found the last Snow Leopard backup file. I am worried about doing anything because the"Senior Tech" at Apple (phone support) said I would have to "drag and drop" the files ?..? Another "Senior Tech" said I would have to boot up with the Snow Leopard disk first then do ? . . ? I am desperate I must have access to all my old Appleworks spreadsheet files for taxes, my database mail merge for my ten page leases. etc. I never saw anywhere that Lion would not support all those previous files. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE EXACT PROCEDURE I SHOULD FOLLOW ? I AM TERRIFIED OF MAKING A MISTAKE ! Also, I would like to make a bootable backup when I am done and I have been told to use Super Duper?
