    Wink Can Time Machine access the future?
    Hi, I was wondering if this so called Time Machine can access the future time, so I can retrieve files that I haven't created yet. Maybe that way I can get a free weekend this month... does anyone know how to enable that feature? Thanks a lol.t!

    Yes, it does. Simply start creating your document and it will be accessible via Time Machine.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    No its True you can access the future... If you start writing your document and just keep typing with in it for a few hours... later that evening when you check time machine the finished document will be there.. The only problem is it takes all day of typing to access the future document.. once apple can shorten that time I'm sure more people would be aware of the feature.

    Yes it's very true! That SO CALLED Time Machine can work Miracles, Cure the common cold even!

    It's better than the delorian in Back to the Future in fact, but does it have a iFlux Capacitor??!

    In a more serious note, Time Machine lets you go back in time to recover files you deleted by accident. Works great for that purpose.

    So you are joking right? How would it access something that hasn't been done yet? You people are pulling my leg!

    The OP asked. I hope it was in jest. My post sure is except for the last sentence.

    Nothing on a computer can go to the future that has not happened yet. As least I don't think so!
