    So, I have my entire Lion partition (my iMac's HDD is formatted into BootCamp Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion DevPreview 3) backed up onto an external Goflex 2 TB drive.

    Lion is way too buggy.

    If I perform a complete erase of the partition and reinstall Snow Leopard onto it, will I be able to restore from the aforementioned backup (from Lion)?

    Thanks :D

    How did you back up? If you used TM, then I would think TM would just copy your "lion" files back over SL. If you cloned the drive, you can just copy what is needed after installing SL.
