Hello,

So I decided to try Ubuntu out and wasn't too impressed. Before I did that, I used Super to make a backup of my drive to a FireWire drive. However now I'm trying to restore and running into problems. When I go to select my drive in startup there is no problem, but I seem to be running off of the FireWire drive. When I go to Disk Utility to do a restore, it doesn't seem to have a restore file that Disk Utility can detect. Instead there is just a listing of folders like Applications. Did I not do the backup correctly? If not, is there some option for me to restore the way it is? Thanks.

Just use SuperDuper! to restore the backup drive (which you're running from ) to the internal drive using Smart Update...
