    If I do a time machine backup - does it back up everything on all accounts or just the one I'm currently logged in as?
    The reason I'm asking is, I just bought a (used) iMac with a 250GB drive, and I have ordered a 760GB WD green drive. Can I just back up using Time Machine and then restore via Time Machine? I have four accounts on here - I'd rather not have to go through the pains of reinstalling everything.

    It back ups everything, except if you EXCLUDE it.

    Or you can use CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper to clone your HDD.

    And you can use MRoogle to search for many similar threads.
