I'm guessing that it's not necessary to boot from an external backup drive to restore to the internal drive.

But having done that, what is the correct or best way to revert completely to the...

Thanks. I'm not sure how to start from the backup. Is it just: hold down 'Option' key during or after restarting, and then there's a menu that allows the user to choose which drive to start from?

Can different partitions have different formatting?

Can different formatting co-exist on the same physical HD (i.e., in different partitions)?
