    I just upgraded to Leopard today (finally ;-) and had a question. I did an in-place upgrade (keep all apps) and after rebooting into Leopard all my data is gone in iCal, iPhoto, Mail, etc. Shouldn't everything have been the same and all the data been migrated over as well. Is there a way to do this for all the apps at once, or what/how can I now get my old data back? Thanks...

    I don't know, but if I remember correctly, "keeping apps" and "transfering user data" are different options in the installer - did you check both?

    Anyway, if you have a backup of your system prior to upgrading, you should still be able to transfer your user data from that using the Migration Assistent in your Utilities folder... Good luck!
