At work we have a Time Machine drive on the network. I'm trying to restore one of our machine's backup to an external drive. When I boot into the Recovery HD, I can't reach the network drive. Is there a way to restore a Time Machine backup without booting to the Recovery HD?
You can restore from a Time machine backup with the Migration Assistant app. You can find it at /Applications/Utilities/
I have never used it with networked Time Machine drives.
