I'm working with a 2013 iMac running with the newest Yosemite. There was something wrong on my system which required that I erase the internal HD and do a clean install. Fine. But when I use Migration Assistant to bring back the data it doesn't allow me to select, say, iTunes apart from all of my other "documents". That's a problem for two reasons:
1) It will take more than 24 hours to reinstall
2) It might add on whatever file corrupted my previous system.
I just got off the line with Apple Support and they had nothing apart from their manual, and my question was off manual.
What I would like to do is enter the existing copy of the TM backup so that I can selectively restore the files I know are not corrupt, like iTunes.
There must be some way to do this. I can't imagine Apple creating a backup plan where you'd put a corrupt OS back onto your system. Or it there another way, say through Terminal? My backup is 2TB and I'd prefer my computer not be out of commission for a full day while possibly corrupts files get loaded back into it.
Any help is appreciated.
