I have a desktop Mac and MacBook Air.
The MacBook Air has decided to die, so I want to restore the back up files in my Time Machine to my Mac desktop.
How do I do that?
It must be simple, but I can only get into the data for my Mac desktop.
⌥ alt/option-click the Time Machine icon in the menu bar and keep the key held whilst selecting Browse Other Backup Disks….
From there, you can select the other Mac and copy files.
