How do I restore my files from Time Machine backups?

After completing your first Time Machine backup, you can restore files using the Time Machine application. To start it, open the ‘Applications’ folder using ‘Finder’ and double click on ‘Time Machine’ in your ‘Applications’ folder.

Select the folder/file in the focused Finder Window and start moving “back in time”. You can click on the timeline at the right hand side, ‘Finder’ windows in the background or navigate using the arrows at the bottom right of the Finder window. Once you have located the file/folder in question, click on ‘Restore’.
