Time Machine Restore works

I just got a new MacBook Pro yesterday. I “needed” a new machine because my old one is a Core Duo (not Core 2 Duo) and wouldn’t run the Java 6 preview. And my son “needed” my old MacBook Pro for college. Yea, that’s it.

Anyway, I turned on the new machine this morning, and selected the Restore from Time Machine option. It chugged away for an hour or whatever, but by about 9:30 AM I was sitting in front of a near replica of the other machine. Pretty cool.

I did have to install XCode and Dashcode again.

And I had to re-acquaint my bluetooth phone with the new Mac. And re-authorize my iTunes music.

And for some reason, I had to reset my USB drive as the Time Machine volume (and it choose a new backup database folder, so it’s going to start over with a full backup).
