Question: First time Time Machine recover...

Hi.


I would like to clean erase my MacBook air's - 2014 model.

Instead of reinstalling everything I would like to experiment by recovering with a Time Machine backup.


But then I started to wonder: let's suppose that I have some sort of problem with my Mac's app's... or that, for example, for some reason there's a lot of 'junk files' on my SSD. By recovering with Time Machine, do those 'bad files' or 'problems' repeat themselves? Or will my Mac work as smooth as it used to?


Thanks in advance for any information that you may give me.

Kind regards.

MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13)

Time Machine backs up everything on your Mac, so if you have "bad files" or "problems" on your Mac, you will have the same bad files or problems when/if you completely restore the Mac from a Time Machine backup. The same would be true with any kind of backup software that copies everything on your Mac.
