    I just thrashed my setup, and had to go back to scratch. I.e. I first attempted a restore from Time Capsule, which didn't work (the MP just sat there afterwards with the spinning circle.)

    Then I tried an earlier TC, but with no end in sight, I eventually blew the HD away, restored again from TC. It didn't work (again), so I installed Lion on top of what I had, and after this OSX is up and running again. I was back to 10-7, so I installed all the updates etc., and now it all looks fine.

    However, is there a way to do a health check of OSX? I repaired disk permissions, but is there anything I should do?

    Thanks in advance,

    Unless you're having specific problems, there's nothing you need to do. Repairing disk permissions is only appropriate in specific situations and isn't a "cure all" for general problems.
