How to Restore Mac using Time Machine Backup in Recovery Mode

You can restore your Mac from the backup you created in Time Machine Backup by entering the Recovery Mode. The guide is pretty simple, so go and have a look.

In case you use Time Machine Backup to keep things safe on an external drive, then there’s an easy way to restore this backup. The same can be done through the Recovery Mode on your Mac. By using the restore option, you’ll lose all the changes you have made to the current OS X. Each and everything will be erased, and then the backup will be restored.

So if you are moving ahead with restoring your backup, make sure you again backup your personal files on other partition, or on any other external device. There will be no possible way to recover the data, once the restore is initiated. Assuming that you have backed up and ready to restore your Time Machine Backup, you can now head south to learn the process.
