Hi All! I had to do an Archive & Install when my mac pro wouldn't startup. Applecare didn't bother to alert me that doing this would mean I'd have to reinstall all of my 3rd party apps. Ugh and double ughh. I have about 99 3rd party apps to get reinstalled. My question is - I have a Carbon Copy Clone of my main HD on an external drive I made a few months ago, with most of my apps on it. Would I be able to somehow use that to reinstate my apps? If not, is there any way around having to reinstall them one by one? Considering I have this CCC, not to mention up to date Time Machine backups, I'm hoping there is an easier way. If there isn't I'll have to wonder why I've bothered to do all this backing up... Any advice is appreciated. Thanks! dj P.S. I'm on a Mac Pro 2008 w/ OS X 10.5.1.
