I apologize if this has already been resolved somewhere else, but here is my question. My friend asked me to do a clean install of Snow Leopard on his MacBook, the purpose being to restore how fast and snappy the OS is when you first buy it. My question is does reinstalling Snow Leopard and then restoring from Time Machine defeat the purpose of this? Is it better to just install Snow Leopard and then manually move files over from Time Machine or another location? This may be a stupid question, because I don't personally use Time Machine, I just back up my files elsewhere, so I honestly don't have much experience with using Time Machine. Thank you for your responses!
