My superdrive in my macbook pro kicked the bucket and I have to hand the whole thing over to apple to fix. Following the advise of many people online, I will be wiping my hard drive before dropping the machine at their doorstep. I have the machine backed up via Time Machine on an external drive. Will I be able to restore it to its current state using Time Machine and my backup after it returns from Apple. I have sensitive and important data on the laptop...this is why I need to be sure to get it all back.
