I've just replaced the optical drive with an SSD, so now I have the usual setup of an SSD with the OS and apps and then a data 1TB drive.
So I like to use Time Machine, and I know how to get the back up done, but what happens if I ever need to restore? Is TM smart enough to restore tonthe right drives/partitions correctly?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Followed the instructions but could not get that to work, so have just moved my big documents manually and left some bits on the SSD.

Multiple-Partition Time Machine backups & recoveries?
I've always TM'ed single-partition installs. But now I have an SSD & HDD combo inside a MBP. I understand that I can do the backup, but what happens if I have a failure and need to recover from scratch. How does the recovery go? Do I get options for recovering the data correctly to the 2 drives/partitions?
Can't think of a way to try this myself without flipping a coin on losing my setup
