going to the external drive containing the TM backup with Finder, all folders within her "old" user-folder showed a small red stop-sign, which I learned is an issue with permissions. I wasn't able to restore manually. This is probably the easiest way to go. You can fix the "red stop-sign" issue by opening Terminal and entering: sudo diskutil ...

Recovery mode needs a netboot server (like OS X server app) to serve up that image. You could set one up or you could copy the backup instance to a USB drive and connect it locally. For netboot, I'd recommend deploy studio as your go to solution in terms of ease of use and robustness of the solution. Also, if you just need user files and applications, you ...

Though it takes a while to migrate and then copy and then reinstall a clean copy most of that time is passive work. So just set it and forget it or your going ...

Failing that the OPTION key at startup that Alistair mentioned will allow you to choose a boot partition and boot into Mac O/S if it is installed. Note that it is ...

Your account has to have the same username as the pre-wipe account. Make a new account with the pre-wipe account's username, and you should be able to get your files without needing to authenticate every time! (Thanks to 0942v8653 for saying that you only need the username. If it still doesn't work, try making the password the same too.)

Hold down the Option key (⌥) when your Mac starts. That should take you to the startup selection screen. Hopefully it'll show you an icon for Windows and another icon for OSX. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1310 If it doesn't then you might need to install OSX from scratch. If your Mac is fairly recent you can do this from the Internet directly. ...

If you look on that Time Machine drive you should see a top-level folder named Backups.backupdb. If you open that folder you will see a machine name folder, inside that a series of dated folders representing individual backup instances. Inside each of those you will find "Macintosh HD" or whatever your hard disk used to be called. In there, find your files! ...

You can change the default location for the main mp3 file storage for iTunes, but not [easily] the location of the database files. It is far simpler in the long term to leave the database in its default location - C:\Users\[your name]\Music\iTunes This is also a folder you should recover from your old machine & transfer to the new one, otherwise you ...

My specific situation was that initially I tried a backup version that was too late to contain the app required. Once I switched to an earlier backup, the app was there and successfully restored with all its data.

My own answer will be not applicable to any situation, but here is how I solved the problem. All the data I needed from app in question (X) can be easily extracted once the app (with its data) is installed on the device. So I did the following: Backup the latest state to iTunes (saving a previous backup with "Archive" just before doing that) Restore to ...
