    Disk info says 118GB used but Time Machine backup is only 95GB.

    Is this TM backup complete or not?

    TM omits some bits that the system recreates automatically, like caches and temporary files.

    ok thanks.

    So it's probably a complete backup?

    Yes. 95 GB out of 118 GB sounds about right.
