Sorry I still don't have my head completely around what I can do with Time Machine.

I had thought all i could do with my new mac is restore everything from time machine and have an exact copy as what I did. Even clicking through the various sections doesn't give me full control down to the specific documents/folders.

But I just opened my time machine folders and could go into all the various folders.

Can I actually connect my time machine to a cleanly installed mac and not going through migration assistant, filter through the latest time machine backup and drag it into my mac?
QUOTE Thanks
