Hello there
I have IMAC processor 2.16 GHz core 2 intel Duo, start up Mac HD connected to a Lacie G5 external HD and has been a gem, and all these years my v good friend has put all puzzles in the right places for me, and now he has poorly brain, would like to help me but can't, as I am a new person to problems I am seeking help out here.
I do backup so I hope it has worked, my probby is that I have deleted a mailbox and some of it's babies, yes they are gone, I am thinking then, that if I backup again, the mailbox that was, will be deleted as of course, it's not there.
So what I want to know is, how do I get the mailboxes from the ccc back onto the Mac HD,if at all please

CCC Backup and Restore

You should find a method of Restoring files from the Backup you created by launching CCC and looking for something like "Restore"

Once you have found it, and have it running, you should be able to select what you want to restore in the same was as you select what you want to backup.

Find the missing mailboxes in the list, select it and Restore.

Good luck

Carbon Copy Cloner Restoring backedup files.

This is from the help files of CCC.

[quote]How do I restore files backed up using the "Incremental backup of selected items" method?

If you need to restore just a file or handful of files, simply browse the backup drive in the Finder and copy those items back to your original drive to restore them. If you need to restore many files using CCC, select the drive that you backed up to as the source, select your original drive as the target, then proceed as you did when you originally backed up your drive. Carefully consider the "Delete files that don't exist on the source" option; if there are other important files on the volume you're restoring to, you don't want to accidentally erase them. Also, you may deselect the root of a volume in the "Items to be copied" table, then re-select only a few items to limit what items are restored. Note that you cannot select the boot drive as the target, you will need to boot from another drive if you need to restore directly to your boot drive.[/quote]

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
