    Ok I did a time machine back prior to doing a clean install on my macbook pro. After the clean install I never restored from TM I just started fresh. If I plug TM in now can I restore single files/folders that I want? And if I start to back up again to that drive will everything be erased that is on there now?

    Yes, you can restore single files/folders from your latest backup. No, new backups won't overwrite your old backups (unless your disk is low on space, in which case it may start removing backups to make more space).
