    When Snow Leopard comes out in september, I would like to completely reformat and install on the drive in my unibody macbook. I have a time capsule and would like to know whether or not someone can restore their mac from os x 10.5 to 10.6. Or my other option is to upgrade the os on my macbook and then back up the changed system files. Then I would restore from that backup, but I would rather just restore all of my non system files from my 10.5 backup. Is this possible? Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Will

    You'll be able to use the migration assistant to move your apps and data from the Time Capsule to the SL install just fine.

    Ok Thanks :). Just wondering has anyone with a copy of a snow leopard beta actually tried this?
