Sooo. I have a guy retiring soon, and it looks like I get to take over his mac. I made a critical error in updating to Catalina, and lost use of alot of the apps we use here at work. Could I restore Mac 1 (My mac) using the Time Machine set up for Mac 2 (The retiree's mac). Thinking we could use it to get Mac 1 prepared for another trainee in a week or so.

  • I have not tried this, but I am guessing that it would work best to reinstall the OS on that Catalina PC and then "restore" it using the desired TM backup. And be sure you have a backup of your data too, you'll likely need that as well – Steve Chambers Oct 22 '20 at 18:58

Migration Assistant can 'copy' one machine to another. I would ask your IT department first as this can really muck up management and other things.
