Can the Genius Bar see if a restore was a fresh install or from a backup?

I want them to see that it was a fresh install that I did, and not a backup. Last time, they seemed to think I restored from backup and that was the cause of issues. But I've since done a fresh install and the issues continued. Can they see that via diagnostic data?

Yes. If you are going in for an issue, restore from backup, then restore as new so they won't send you on your way telling you to do so on your own time.

Restore and setup as new.
