Hi all, this is my first post - hope you can help me with this question regarding Time Machine. I am (eagerly) awaiting my new iMac 27 i7 and what is left of my old iMac 24 is a full Time Machine backup. Now, when the new machine arrives, I am interested in only restoring my mails including accounts/settings - and iTunes (actually only what i bought on iTunes and not the rest - as i intend to ALAC all my cd's - but this is "nice to have"). How can I do this? I am afraid the when picking restore user settings it will restore "much more" than this. Is it possible to specify to the detail i want? I am wondering if I could just file-restore all mail-files, but that seems to be aiming for trouble or inconsistencies. And last - the dumb quesion: When plugging my old Time Machine into the machine it will ask if I want to use it as Time Machine Backup. Should I say yes to that, or wait untill I can get into the help programmes and use the assistant? Reason I am asking is my paranoia on that if I say yes, it will erase my backup to start a "fresh" new machine TM Hope my questions...(and your answers) make sense!
