I've wiped my machine (to start over), and I'd like to restore some key files back (like pictures and stuff like that).
However, when I connect my Time Machine drive and open Migration Assistant, it can't find my Time Machine drive. I've even tried logging in as root and invoking the application; no dice. It can see one of my old machine's backup (pre-2009), but that's not really the one I want.
It might be a problem that the name of my machine somehow was changed to 'iMac 1 (2)' - and thus the folder in Backups.backupdb is named the same - could that be tripping up Migration Assistant?
