Hello,

I've recently created a second account on my macbook (2009) to test restoring my iTunes library as I am planning to replace my hard drive.

There is not much I can say, I go into the time machine folder and boom a lot of my folders have a stop sign on them and I cannot open them.

Any ideas??

Thank you!!
QUOTE Thanks

Individual user accounts do not have access to each other's TM backups through the Finder. That'd be like giving the other users on your machine admin privileges.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

thanks for the quick response. it makes sense - i turned on sharing and stored the changes with TM and I am able to access the files and check what I needed.
