I spilled water on my MacBook Air (512 GB hard disk) yesterday, and it is going be a while before I can get it back from the repair. I have the opportunity to borrow another MacBook in the meantime, but it is only 256 GB. Is it possible to load some of the content on the Time Machine Backup to the borrowed MacBook, which is only 256 GB, and then later (when my 512 GB MacBook arrives) load the backed up items from the 256 GB MacBook AND the stuff I left out on the Time Machine? I am not quite sure what exactly will happen if I do so, and I am afraid I will loose the data I leave out on the Time Machine when I back up to the 256 GB. I do not want to loose those data (especially because it is my iPhoto with photos and videos that cannot fit the smaller computer). I hope someone can help me.
