    My MBP is being repaired and a new HDD is being put in.

    Is there any way to do a restore from Time Machine that I could only select what I wanted to restore?

    I'm assuming the computer will come with a fresh install of Leopard and I guess my question is: Can i migrate docs/media/software from my time machine backup or is it an all or nothing restore?

    i find that the best thing to do is to navigate to the backupsdb folder and then just click on the 'latest' alias. from there i can restore what i want.
