Learn about Mac Basics: Time Machine backs up your Mac

HT1427 I have had a replacement hardrive installed on my iMac. I am now trying to restore the back-up I made previously. When I select the back-up I want and hit restore I get a message "Time Machine" can't be modified or deleted because it is required by MAC OS
