Here's the situation:
- My GF's MacBook Pro broke, OS would not start at all
- I inserted Knoppix Live CD, booted and just copied all of the files from her HD to folder on external HD
- I've reinstalled OS on MacBook pro
My questions is: how can I easily restore all of her settings from HD to new OS installation and user account? Will simple copying files do the job? And what kind of software you recommend for backups?
I'm coming from *NIX / PC background, and new to Mac OS X, so wanted make sure before proceeding.
