    The good news is you can restore your system to Mountain Lion and avoid all of Mavericks but it is not a straight forward process if you didn't create a system backup.


    Were you running Time Machine before your upgrade to Mavericks?


    I would also make a complete backup of your current system just in case you missed something.


    For that use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to an external Hard Drive, duplicate it to make sure.

    Hi Peter,

    I was not running Time Machine before Mavericks but am now. are Super Duper and Carbon Copy Cloner the same type of software? And yes I would like to revert back to Mountain Lion If that was what I had before Mavericks?

    They both make a complete or partial back up of your entire System. The backup can be a compressed mountable .dmg file if you want. This makes a file that is smaller than your Hard Drive and can be stored for opening later or recreating elsewhere, and is an essential part of a Mac admins toolkit.


    The worry with changing any system is that you may need to switch back or get at something that you left behind.


    A good idea is to step across to new systems using an alternative hard drive just for that version.


    I am doing that at the moment with Maverick and did it both with Lion and Mountain Lion.


    With Lion I rapidly determined how bad it was and simply dumped it.
