The basic TimeMachine recovery procedure boils down to: 1) boot from Recovery/Installation media 2) make use of the Disk Utility (I recall under the tools menu option of the installation USB/DVDs) to format/partition the new disk 3) Then select/choose the Restore/transfer option where you can then select the TimeMachine (Or Migration Assistant) to restore ...

You can access time machine via a mount and then search and copy back to your machine using the automation technique of your choosing. Here is a command you might find helpful. Replace A and B with your two directories. (see the SO answer here) $ comm -23 <( find A -type f -printf '%f\n' | sort | uniq ) <( find B -type f -printf '%f\n' | sort | uniq ...

I would try in ~/Library/Mail. You can delete the contents in this folder, then go into mail and rebuilt your inbox to make sure everything syncs. Note: it's called the MacBook Air

If you go to the folder that the backup was made there is a list of different coded long numbered folders there, use the list of the available iphone backups to determine the backup you want to restore. Inside that folder there will be an info.plist file open it with a text editor. It will have the version of the IPSW in that file. Search for "Product ...

Try using Migration Assistant. Go to Applications > Utilities. Migration Assistant allowed you to import files settings from a Mac or Time Machine backup or even from a drive (dmg) that you specify. See this Apple Support document. See also this thread.

You may be able to access individual iCloud files if you have a Mac. I've done this (admittedly not recently though). There are instructions here: http://www.macworld.com/article/2310807/how-to-access-icloud-files-from-your-mac.html

Apple has provided detailed steps about how to restore files from iCloud on this page, you should have a look. https://support.apple.com/kb/ph12521?locale=en_US

Yes, you can. When you set up the new Mac and connect it to your Time Machine backup either through the network or via cable, you can select restore from Time Machine Backup during setup. If you have already set up your new Mac and want to now restore, use Migration Assistant found in your Applicatons > Utilities folder. The instructions can be found on ...

Hmm... not sure what you need, but be aware that eventually your old app may quit working with the next version or even the next 8.? update. But, to answer your question, connect your iDevice to iTunes (preferably on a Mac, but a Windows PC should work as well). Hopefully, you downloaded this app to disk already. If not, you will need to find it from an ...

If it's a built-in Apple app, then no. Otherwise, just don't update that app when asked. Eventually, though, you will get to a point where the old version may no longer work on the new OS. Check that you don't have automatic downloads set in Settings > iTunes & App Store, then non-Apple apps will not update until you tell them to, from App Store app ...

For whatever reason, the SIM card slot decided to work about a day before I did the restore. I don't what did it or why it happened, but anyways it works. To answer my own question: No, nowhere in the setup for iOS 6.1.6 after the restore require a SIM card for activation, I'm not so sure about other iPhone models running other iOS versions, though.

Absolutely - this is a good plan in general - having a bootable backup in addition to a Time Machine interval backup. I like to get a SD card / micro SD card and install an emergency boot OS with just enough tools to fix any situation. How do I make a bootable USB flash drive for a MacBook Air? I would do that before making any changes. Next, you will ...

What you need to do is reset your whole system. Note that if you did not back up applications or such, these will be gone. Boot into the Recovery Partition, and erase your hard disk. You can do this by going to the Disk Utility and selecting your hard disk. (Your Mac's hard disk, NOT your Time Machine backup of course.) There are a couple of tabs at the ...

Since it says you need to reformat, what you need to do is: Boot into the Recovery Partition Click "Disk Utility" Select "Macintosh HD" Go to the "Erase" tab Select the format as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" Choose a security option from the security option section(I would recommend zero-pass since this is still your Mac) NOTE: If you have an SSD, the ...

Disconnect all iCloud devices from the network (in case one is problematic) Log in to iCloud.com from a computer Select Settings web app Scroll to the bottom left Select Restore Contacts See what archives exist and then go to the contacts web app to make sure the cloud version of contacts is wrong. Optionally, export all the current contacts in case a ...

If you are resetting these things and then restoring then from a saved local backup that second part is tied to your Mac. You can reset an iPad to its "factory fresh" state from any Mac/PC, but you might not be able to reset an iPad to your desired "factory fresh eco_bach kiosk" state from any but yours.

You are definitely mistaken ;) it can be done by any computer, Mac or PC! As long as you have the IPSW file you can restore it from iTunes on any platform. It's only 'tied' when you sync your iPhone with iTunes library.

If all else fails I have (over the last few days) been recovering files on my corrupted backup drive with Photorec. Photorec is part of TestDisk, and despite the name knows how to recover many more file types than just photos, including music and Office documents. It seems that the sparesbundle bands still leave most files contiguous on the disk, so they can ...

Time Machine would be the most reliable of the two. CCC is brilliant for cloning to the same hardware, but it's not really meant to cross to newer hardware, as it has no 'installer' process to prepare for the new hardware/OS drivers. However, a better option may be ... You can migrate directly from the old Mac to the new, as part of the "welcome to your ...

Both of them have their pros and cons and it becomes a opinionated question. In my experiences, I got the feeling that the CCC might be the faster option compared to TM, having just restored ±680GB over a 12hour timespan ffrom 7200RPM HDD over SATA 6GB to striped Fusion drives.

Time Machine would be your best route. Boot the new computer up holding Command + R and then in the Recovery utility, select "Restore from Time Machine backup" - assuming it is a full backup, it should work OK.

You could use iFunbox to save all your apps individually or you could use iTunes to sync all your apps at once

Firstly, I would suggest you to check and find a version of iTunes that supports your iPhone 3GS. Secondly, you could backup your iPhone, but be aware that a backup could bring the issue back after the phone is freshly restored. Next, I can suggest to check and find a pre-activation method(as far as I remember RedSn0w was able to do that) and create a ...
