Just upgraded my 2012(mid) non-retina 13” MacBook Pro with a crucial sad 1tb and having troubles restoring back up from Time machine. I’m sure it’s important to mention I installed a new data cable as well.
The steps I used were: In the recovery mode, I erase the hard drive in the disk utilities section and then go to back up from time machine. I go through all the steps to select the time machine and back up version. It seems to start the back up for a few moments but then I get an error:
“An error occurred while adding a recovery system to the destination disk. Restart your computer, and then try restoring again.”
I’ve gone throug a couple of cycles of this, consulting you tube each time to see if I’m missing something or if trying a couple of different steps in the disk utility menu helps. My backup is encrypted and I did not select the Mac Extended + Journaled (encrypted) format just the Mac Extended + Journaled format.
I’m lost and don’t know what to do and what to try to resolve this.
