    Hello, I want to return to a previous state - restore (only the files on Macintosh and Macintosh 2) because I delete some files (I have create backups with Time Machine). What is the procedure ?

    Do you mean restore the whole machine back to a previous date?

    Plug in the TM backup disk then do ao command-r boot to recovery. When the recovery screen comes up click Restore from Time Machine Backup. Select the TM disk as the source of the backup then you will see this screen.


    Pick the date you want to restore to then you will be asked to pick a destination for the restore.

    Hello Weaselboy, I have two internal HDs, the one for apps and the other for files (documents, photos, music, etc). Also I have one external Disk for backups. I installed a stupid app (which can find the duplicates on my computer and it deletes me important files). So I have to restore at the time before install this app. I restored my Macintosh HD with Cmd+r and Macintosh HD 2 with Time Machine. And worked fine !
    Thanks again.
