I have a 2011 MacBook Pro and it was running OS 10.7. I use Time Machine regularly. Just had the harddrive replaced with an SSD and OS 10.11. If I restore from Time Machine instead of Migration Assistant will the restore revert to the old 10.7 OS?
If I use Migration Assistant to pull files from Time Machine, what will I lose? Apps? 'Date created' metadata?
(It's possible I haven't understood enough to state the question clearly.)
