    Hey all,

    I have searched the forums and am having a hard time finding this thread so sorry if this is a duplicate.

    I have leopard on my macbook pro and restarted the whole operating system from scratch. Before doing this I copied all my data onto an external. Although my time machine has a lot of information on it, the last time i backed up my computer was a good 20 days ago so i think that is useless. Anyways, I was wondering if there was any way to recover my ical calendars, address book contacts and mail inbox history from my library folder?

    Thank You,
    James Marro

    You should be able to get them back, they just won't contain anything you added to them since your last TM backup.

    Yeah and that is my last resort, because i think i have changed all those things dramatically since my last backup. Any way to get it straight from my library folder?

    There may be a "previous" version in the library folder.

    I'm sure there are other threads here which go into more detail on what you need to do, do a Google with appended.
