Without going into too much detail, i need to reinstall leopard and restore all my files from time machine. I just have a few question about it: 1. What files does it restore and what doesn't it restore? i heard i have to re-enter my info for things like mail and spot light has to re-index, but does it restore my iTunes playlists? safari bookmarks? anything it doesn't restore? 2. My external is partitioned into two section: Time Machine Backups and Storage. I would just have to choose the correct partition right? 3. How long does it take? i have around 100GB to transfer, and my hard drive isn't the best, i hope it doesn't die or anything during the transfer. Anything else to get prepared?
