    Hello all,

    I was running Leopard since launch day. Last night I decided to go ahead and re-intall Leopard doing an "erase and install". Everything went fine. I had Time Machine enabled from the last install. AFter reinstalling the OS, I re-enabled Time Machine on the same drive it was backing up before on. One thing I noticed is that it didn't pickup all my old backups from the previous OS install.

    Is this normal?

    Try right-clicking on the Time Machine icon in the Dock and choosing "Browse other Time Machine Disks..."


    When installing Leopard, you can choose to restore from Time Machine at that point too before it installs.
