    quick question, I'm using time machine with my time capsule to backup my mac mini.

    I have two drives in this mac and I'm backuping both. Now I replaced the two drives for one fusion drive.

    How can I do a restore of both drives on a single drive ? I want to restore the data of the second HDD in a folder on my fusion

    Is that possible ??? thanks

    okI did some tests

    I booted in recovery mode from a USB key and selected restore from time machine.

    I see there is an option called "Restore from:" with a listbox. The option is greyed out but the item selected is my bootable drive (Macintosh HD). Because it's greyed out, I can't see if the second drive is there.

    Now I wondering...is it greyed out because it doesn't see the second drive or because it shows only bootable backup...
