Question TWRP and Restore Backup

Hi guys. I'm using the 2.6 version of TWRP. It seems whenever I restore a backup things always seem to go wrong and the OS reboots the first 24-48 hours before things are eventually stable. Do I need to factory reset and wipe system, cache and dalvik cache before I restore a backup, or should restore simply take care of everything for me already when I'm switching from one ROM to another?

One of the reasons I don't backup.

But, yeah I suppose you would want to clear data and cache before you flashed a backup.

You should always wipe cache, data, system, dalvik cache and do a factory
reset before restoring a nandroid backup or flashing a new or different rom.

Doing a factory reset before restoring a nandroid backup will not make
you loose anything at all because the nandroid backup contains all your
settings, apps, mms, contacts and anything else you had in your rom
prior to making the nandroid backup.

It would also be best if you went to the play store and download the free app
"Goomanager" and use that to make sure you have the latest version of TWRP
for your phone.

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
