I'm doing a clean erase and install of Lion, and am looking for the best way to restore individual folders into my home directory via Time Machine.
I've done a dummy run, clean Lion install, then 'browse other disks' in Time Machine, navigate to my home folder and 'restore' what I need, such as pictures/music and folders inside the .library folder (such as Mail and Keychains). However this method seems to give you odd permissions, like this:
Hence I wondered if anyone knows what the best method is to restore files and folders after a clean install.
N.b I do not want to use the migration assistant, or 'restore OS from Time Machine' - as I specifically want to do a clean install, and just copy over what I need (some folders will be moved onto a separate disk to the OS, and some will remain on the same disk).
