    Hello, I've had Leopard for about a month now, but just today have I really started delving into the new features (namely Boot Camp and Time Machine). I backed up my drive with Time Machine, partitioned my drive, then wasn't happy, so I wanted out. I didn't know you could just undo the partition in BootCamp Assistant, so I figured Time Machine would do the trick. I Time Machine'd my username I think. Maybe my HD. I should've paid more attention to what I was doing, but it's been a long day, and I wasn't thinking clearly. So after the backup and reboot, Boot Camp was still there, but EVERYTHING on my computer was at it's default settings... I still have my applications, but they all for reset. So all my bookmarks, preference settings, my dock... everything is screwed up. Is there any way to fix this? I didn't think Time Machine would do that, and I'm pretty upset about it... thanks for the help.

    i cant understand your post very well. what do you mean by:

    you shouldnt have to use time machine to remove boot camp but i looks like you worked out that boot camp assistant does it for you.

    it sounds like you renamed your home folder which creates a new user with the default settings. dont worry your user account its still there. check this to get your settings back. if you want to change your username follow these instructions
