Hello again folks: Well, received my Snow Leopard disk from the wife and got it installed without a problem (actually installed from the external USB disk drive). Now I have been reading that a complete install is best, rather than the upgrade that I did. My question is...if it was you, would you go ahead and redo it, reformatting the hard drive and do a complete install again or would you leave well enough alone? I kinda want to reformat due to the fact that I have loaned out the computer to several people and I don't know WHAT they might have downloaded or viewed (if you know what I mean). I just don't want to be stuck on the short end of the stick...just in case. I hesitate reformat because of the applications that are online that I will have to download again. Also, what about my itunes music, podcasts, etc and my photo's that are on the system and on my iPod touch? Speaking of that..now that I have upgraded, my iPod no longer sync's? Tried it for the first time last night...no go. Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it. Just want to cover all bases before I put the disk back in and say "GO" Padre <in the big kitty litter box> Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
