    Hi all,
    I currently have alot of info(bookmarks, emails, etc.) on my MBA. It has one user account. Can I restore ONE of the accounts on my iMac using the MBA backup, and if I can, how? Thanks..

    I believe so, but not with the OS X Install DVD. Because the DVD doesn't give you the option to choose specific files.

    So, open up time machine (the program), then browse to the backup you want.

    Under Users, there will be different accounts. Find the account you would like. Click, and restore.

    You can also browse within, and choose specific folders (pictures, movies, etc).

    Hope that helps.
