Hi, My old G5 iMac stopped working. Luckily I have everything backed up on a Western Digital external HD. I used migration assistant to transfer everything. Really just wanted my 10,000 photos and iTunes library (I did check all boxes though). The only thing that did transfer was applications with no files. In addition when I go to Time Machine and click on backups it shows 2 options - my new iMac and the folder for my G5 iMac. When I choose my G5 folder it shows everything there but when I try to open iPhoto I get the error "you can't open the application iPhoto in a Time Machine Backup". I am feeling a little panicked at this point. The photos are a collection over many years. I would be devatated if I cannot restore them. I do have Applecare and will call if I have to. I know that there are MANY more KNOWLEDGEABLE users on this site. Thank you in advance for your help!!!
