    My impression is you can recover your Home folder and user data and settings, not the operating system itself.

    "previous system" recovery

    my main concern would be the the "bookmarks" and approximately 1000 pictures saved into "downloads". any chance those could be recovered?

    o.k. the only problem is that I have a Mac os 10.5.4 (Leopard) not an Intel Mac os 10.6.0 (Snow Leopard). Just to open the "root", the instructions are for os 10.6.0 (Snow Leopard), not os 10.5.4 (leopard). I need instructions for a pre Intel operating system. A LEOPARD OPERATING SYSTEM.

    I'm sorry, I know that poiihy and everyone else is trying to be helpful and that slowly we are getting there. Taking the opening the root admin thing a ma bob, how can it be translated from a SNOW LEOPARD OS TO A LEOPARD OS.

    Or am I reading it wrong?

    Thanks in advance (hoping to get this riddle solved), John

    Check this link for information on enabling root access in Leopard 10.5.
