I have a broken Mac OS 10.6.8 here.
- Startup is normal, login works, but most programs can't be started
- Repair of OS with install disks fails
- Backup via Time Machine is working
- System Settings cannot be accessed
So I have a working backup and want to erase the harddisk to make an installation of 10.7 possible. The problem is, that the backup does not incorporate all files and folders I need. This is due to the settings excluding some folders. Is there a way to change the excluded folders manually?
I'm fine with a hint where to find the configuration files for Time Machine, so I can change them with an appropriate Editor.
