My MacbookPro, although pretty new, is acting slow. I decided to do a “clean install”, erasing the hardrive and reinstalling Snow Leopard. I imagined reimporting only my important settings like emails, address book etc would be ultra easy but it’s not and searches through the web, apple and non-apple sites, did not give any simple answer. So after wasting too much of my day on this I decided to reinstall and migrate my old backup in from time machine, as most answers found on the web are advising. But it didn’t leave much option and just brought back everything, mess included. Now I find myself as I was before, like taking a shower and putting your dirty clothes again. Anyone knows the secret of the true clean install without losing your email, address book, itunes account etc etc?
This was for the techie Mac, now for a far more sweet Mac, the musician one. Absolute Radio session at the Hard Rock Café with Amy MacDonald last night.
