    I'm interested in doing a clean install of OS X El Capitan (rather than upgrade).

    If I back up my data via Time Machine to a Time Capsule and then do a fresh install of OS X El Capitan, is there a way to easily restore all your data and apps only (not the old operating system itself) from the Time Capsule? I'm concerned that if I restore from Time Capsule via Time Machine, it will bring my old version of OS X back as well, rather than just the data and apps.

    If someone could authoritatively answer this query that would be great!
