    When I first got Leopard I restored an image onto my new hdd before I used it as a time machine drive. Does anyone know what will happen if I restore an image of snow leopard onto it and uncheck the erase drive option? Will I just have a bootable time machine drive w/ SL or will I mess up my TM backups? :confused:

    Time Machine operates separately to your cloned copy. You could use the Snow Leopard disk to restore your Time Machine backup, or you could run from the cloned backup. Your cloned backup is not automatically kept up-to-date by Time Machine.

    sorry what I meant is that I put an image of leopard onto the blank HDD to make it bootable. Now I want to put an image of SL over it by restoing the dmg over the hdd w/ disk utility. I am asking if doing so would mess up my time machine backups.
