Samuel is attempting to restore his MacBook Air (Mid 2013) from his Time Machine backup using the
OS X Recovery system. Although he has restored individual files from the Time Machine backup in
the past, he is not given the option to Restore from Time Machine while in Recovery. Which of the
following questions might help you isolate the issue for Samuel?
“How many times did Time Machine complete an incremental backup of the files?”
“Have you seen the little spinning clock in the menu move?”
“In your Time Machine setup, did you exclude any system files?”
“When was the last time you used Time Machine to back up your files?”
