I plugged the Time Machine Hard Drive on the iMac and clicked "Back Up now" in the menu bar, after making sure that nothing was excluded from the process in the Preferences panel.
After I used recovery mode to erase, install the os and restore my data from Time Machine to a new computer.
Once this process completed, I noticed a few odd things:
- A lot of the items in the "Downloads" folder were not present
- When I reopened Safari, the application state of Safari was not restored
Obviously this is very frustrating.
Are my results normal to expect a mirrored Mac with everything perfect?
