I am running a Mac OS X Snow Leopard
And as of late it has started to load and run slower and slower and slower. Which is getting increasingly annoying.
So I am thinking about the solution of a total formate, just reinstalling mac. So if I backup my current mac via time machine, and import a time machine backup onto a newly installed mac osx, will that just transfer the problems making it slow onto the newly installed mac?
Also, If i just want to do it where, I drag all my documents and applications etc from time machine back up to the newly installed mac, will that be ok, or do i need to include any other folders where applications have stored vital stuff etc.
Or shall I just drag my documents folder and then reinstall all the vital apps.
Or maybe you have a better idea.
Update - I have worked out what I want speeded up. Its the amount of time it takes from start up to actually being fully loaded. so its starting to take longer and longer to go from me pressing the power button to fully loaded. any ideas?
