if I system restore with TM, will iCloud try to merge old bookmarks?

    I am getting ready to do a system restore back to an earlier state. But I want to keep my safari bookmarks they way they are. I'm not sure what will happen after I restore my iMac, and then sync with iCloud. Will iCloud automatically replace my old bookmarks with what I currently have stored on the cloud (which is what I would like)? Or will it instead somehow merge all my old bookmarks from my restored state with my current ones that are on the cloud?

    I did export my current bookmarks and saved the file. So I guess if the answer above is the latter, I will let it merge, delete all my bookmarks, and then import my saved file.

    I'd just like to know what to expect.

    What is in iCloud always takes priority, so it will over write what is there once you login to iCloud.

    Thank, you Weaselboy. That's what I would like.
