Cannot find files after time machine restore

[Copy link]

Post time: 2014-03-07 10:15:15 |Show all posts
Using the Mac mini
I have reinstalled my mac mini with Lion. After installation, I have restored the files from my time machine backup, files have been copied with window showing the copying progress.
But after the copying, I can't find the files/apps in the new system that should exisit in the backup of time machine.
I have tried restore different folders but still no change can be seen.
Anything wrong or what's the problem?
        Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

Hmmm, get Find Any File...
Hold Option or alt key when selecting Find to Find All.
Search for some unique file or even part that should've been imported/migrated.

Actually I am thinking about the account issue if the account name may have minor difference on the new system against the one in time machine.
But I still find only 1 account (admin) in the system.

Check System Preferences>Accounts> to see if there's an older/other user to log into.
