Just an update. I bought the 2 TB drive from amazon, put it in, restored from my time machine backup flawlessly. Not sure if im just a victim to the placebo effect but it does seem quicker.

I know that you can't use a smaller drive for a time machine backup. But if the full size hasn't been used yet, can you use a smaller primary drive to restore the backup too?

Yeah I actually have been meaning to clear that out for more space. Its a terminal command you have to run that makes it stop doing it on the internal hard drive.
