    I think it would depend on how you've got Time Machine set up, the type of backups you've done, the space on your backup drive, and what's selected when restoring. As I understand it, Time Machine is set up by default to do incremental backups of your very latest changes and will restore to that. You should be able to also restore to some older point (in case the latest is screwed up), but to what extent depends on the space on your backup drive (can only hold so many older increments).

    Of course, you could have overridden that and also made an entirely separate backup of the original computer - which would have the original OS, settings, and so on. Impossible for me (or anyone else here) to know whether you did that.

    i just manually back-up with TM and it only takes up about a 10th of the external HD. as far as overriding anything i haven't done that (and frankly, don't know how to)

    Almost 4.5 years of owning my MacBook this happens today. It comes and goes, but sometimes stays for a bit. :mad:

    Is this a typical occurrence due to it's age?

    I'm using my IPad and my IPhone and both have photos on them that I need off and saved and I use a PC and not a Mac at this time. I do hate PC but that's another story

    Cool thread OP. I have a question regarding the messaging on my MBP. One day it just decided it was not going to be synced with my iPhone5 so I don't receive the messages on both devices like before. How do i revert that?

    Anyone here have a cracked screen replace on an iPad? Does AQpple just replace the screen or do I need to worry about Data Back Up problems. Please assume that I will be backing up the data.

    When doing a data back up is all the data in the app games lost and the user needs to start all over again?

    This should help I think:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083

    If they are just replacing your screen I would think your data would be preserved. But I would make sure to have a fresh backup which it sounds like you are planning to do.

    If for some reason your data is lost then restoring from backup should keep all data other than maybe some device settings (like wifi passwords, sound settings, etc.).

    TY

    I made an appointment with the local Apple store to have them look at the screen and assess what needs to be done.

    Just orders the 5100/AAL lift. 15x8 wheels and 33x12.50 tires...
    I wouldn't call it typical, but I wouldn't say it's unheard of. I am guessing you don't have apple care on the Macbook? If you do, take it to apple, get a new display. If not, try and re-install the display driver (google around and find a write up, as I am sure there is one.) If that doesn't fix it...then get a new macbook pro retina :p

    Is there a good free app to mess around with audio on? On my old laptop I could make it sound like the song was being played underwater, or in a sewer, ect...

    My applecare expired a long time ago :p I'll try looking up that display driver thingy. Thanks for the tip.

    Hopefully I don't have to put money toward a new one for a while :eek:

    iTunes is the ultimate back up you ever needs. Both works with PC and Mac, so once a week plug your iDevices to iTunes to back it up.

    TM back up only if you have any activities that done to your computer, let say you added a file, changed your preferences and so on. Yes. you can restore from your back up to your previous OS, But why do you want to do that,when the new OS more advance then the previous one. All you have to do is migrate your files to the new MacBook and that's it !

    For some reason the Apps were not restored. On to Apple Support again.

    I am in deep DOO DOO if I cannot restore the Apps.
