    I just replaced my HD on my 15"MBP. The install went well until restoring my data from Time Machine. The apps came over fine but none of my data did. Yes, I checked all the boxes on the "restore from backup" menu.

    Of course now when I start up time machine the backup isn't there. How do I get Time Machine to recognize the backup? I have it on two places - a time capsule and a separate external HD.

    Thanks!

    I don't exactly understand how you did a reinstall. Did you insert your reinstall CD and choose "Restore from a Time Machine"? That's how you have to do it, through the reinstall CD. After that, everything should be exactly how it was before you crashed or whatever.

    Yes I chose "restore from time machine" through the reinstall CD.

    ...never mind. I withdraw my question. I found it on the external HD...I just couldn't find it on the time capsule. Thanks anyway Gunner.
