Is it possible to restore a Yosemite backup to Mavericks? I downgraded and want to access my most recent restore, or else I'll have to use the Mavericks one from a month ago.
I am on a Macbook Pro 13-inch mid-2011.

It's unlikely that this will work - and any software that was updated will probably not understand its settings file (e.g. Mail, Messages and the like). Also, restoring everything would replace system files with Yosemite versions.
You could go into Time Machine and pull out documents and content you have created/updated while running Yosemite, and that should work OK. But restoring settings and the system is highly unlikely to end happily.
Definitely not recommended.
