I had created a test user upon installing Mountain Lion, now I want to import my regular user from backup, but only that particular user and no other users nor applications. However in the Migration-Assistent window all check boxes are greyed out for my most recent backup (both for my carbon copy clone and the TimeMachine backup) even though I could change the selection for a much older backup. What can be done to allow me to make a selection instead of needing to import everything ?

Same issue I'm having. The select file step in Migration Assistant is all greyed out and this can select specific files. I wonder if the latest back up is deleted, perhaps the previous backup can work? – user26481 Aug 1 '12 at 4:24
