I am relatively new to Mac and wanting to better understand the use of Time Machine. I have setup a folder on my NAS with a Quote to store my Time Machine of my RMBP. I have been playing with a lot of different applications seeing what is a good fit for me in regards to my old windows applications. I would like to do a clean install of Mac, and install just the applications I have settled upon. However IF for some reason I stuff it up, can I do a restore of my existing status from the TM backup? Secondly, I have a Boot Camp partition that I am not ready to get rid of. I run a couple of Windows Only apps which don't work with Fusion. Can I reinstall my Mac OS without removing that partition?
