I patched my older MBP to Monterey 12.6 and have a current Time Machine backup. When I rebooted it failed and I used Command R to get to a screen that allowed access to my drives.
It didn't allow me to do a restore from my TM backup, something about it not being a full backup.
I'm not sure what qualifies for a backup that I can restore from using the Command R. My backup excludes files that I don't see as important, but I'd like to have a full backup. How can I do this with Time Machine so that the OSX Utilities will see it, not just the OS?
