Is it possible to restore from a Mountain Lion back-up in Lion?
I would not count on being able to do this. The best way to approach this would be to do a clean install of Lion and manually move your data back from the backup. Migration Assistant will likely not work at all, just as it does not when going from Lion back to Snow Leopard.You probably should be able to do a fresh install of Lion and use the Migration Assistant.
Time Machine lets you do selective restores as well. I would not try to restore actual applications and system setup data.That's not a good idea, as TimeMachine probably would try to restore the system files as well. This would mess up your system - if(!) it works.
The answer as I just said is probably, but you have to be careful what you restore.Thanks for the replies, let's see if i can explain myself better now.
My question is:
If i downgrade to Lion by doing a clean reinstall, will I be able to restore with Time machine from a backup i made while using Mountain Lion?
