I posted this question at AYM, but so far no responses. I thought I'd give it a shot here!

I thought this would be an easy way to do a full (albeit temporary) back up of the imac I'm working on...network it with my pc laptop running MacLan. Now it's time to restore everything (except system) and of course everything shows up with a pc icon. Apps transferred back to the imac won't run. If I change the 'type' and 'creator the icons show up properly but when I try to load I get error 39. (Most of the document files can be opened from within the appropriate application.) Anyway to recover these backups or is this just a function (disfunction?) of the way MacLan networks?
