View Full Version : Websites Password back up in Time Machine.

15th February 2009, 01:39 PM
Hey guys,

I plan to back up my stuff on to a external hardrive using Time Machine. My question is whether or not the the Time Machine back up will also back all the Usernames &Passwords for the website in the Safari & Firefox keychain ?

- will time machine let me backup selected data?
- when using Time Machine for the first time it asks me to erase everything on the external hardrive. What format will the hardrive be in if I chose to erase it via Time Machine ?

My basic aim is to backup and restore the operating system so that it works like it used to when I bought the laptop a yr back. It is a bit sluggish and I was thinking of not reinstalling but to use a feature if there is one in the operating system CD to tune up everything.

Any hep will be appreciated.
