    I'd recommend finding another app for your backups. Apple's backup has failed to restore my files on 2 different occasions after hard drive failures, giving no explanation as to why. I've had no problem restoring a single file after accidentally deleting it or needing to back up to an older...

    Muppet here -- You should scroll up and read again, nobody is slating the first time posters here, I just find it idiotic that a new commer enter this forum group dishing out insults to other users on his/her very first post ... much in the way you just did. Would you go to to a party full of...
