If you deleted the keychain.... No.

If you reset it... maybe.

What did you do?

Deleted.

What do I need to do to start over?

Can it be restored from MobileMe?

Not if you have already synced the deletion. Do you sync automatically, hourly, daily, manually?

Do you have any backups?

I have another computer on my MobileMe account. They both sync Manually. I haven't synced the deletion.

No Backup of OSX 10.6 yet, as I have been dealing with OWC and ProSoft concerning them selling a new Drive Genius 3 that won't boot from CD with Quad Macs. They say they're waiting for Apple to release an SDK for Snow Leopard.

If you sync manually and haven't synced the deletion, you should be good to go.

Open MobileMe in System Preference, then select the Sync tab. Click on "Advanced..." in the lower right hand corner.

You'll get a new drop-down sheet covering the window. Wait for the button in the lower-left to change to "Reset Sync Data..." then click it.

In the "Replace" drop down that appears, select "Keychains", then make sure the animated arrow is pointing from MobileMe to the picture of the Mac and that the caption says "On this computer with sync info from MobileMe." Then click "Replace." You'll get a warning that this will whack your current keychain, that's OK (as you already did that).

It may take a while depending on how much data you had, and you might find that a few don't synch (I've had that problem) but you should be good with 99+% of them.

Waiting for a vendor is no excuse for not having a backup! Use SuperDuper or CarbonCopyCloner or Disk Utility.

Thanks, Jack. That worked the trick Smile

This is the main reason why I've always avoided "automatic sync" -on anything!

I have SuperDuper; does it work with Snow Leopard Quad-Core Macs?

Give Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) a try I like it much better as the other choice trashed 4 drives on a Mac Pro 8 core one time.

Since yup have a second Mac, auto would not have hurt you. The other Mac would warn you if more than 5 or 25% of any item (keychains,bookmarks,etc) would have been changed (I don't recall which is the default). I always use auto to make sure my Mac stay in sync.

While restoring, or backing up? I've never had a problem with SD making HD dupes in Tiger (haven't tried it in OS10.6).

It did the damage while doing a backup. I used it Free for a few years then I decided to pay for it and within a few weeks it totally trashed my system. The only help I received from the developer was "My program cannot do that", so I agreed with him and never used it again.

If you’re not completely appalled, you’re not paying attention.
