I've been using TM to backup my MBP since I bought it 3 years ago, but today I went back to find something and it would only let me look at the last two backups (This AM and yesterday). There were dates on the right side timeline all the way back to back to Sep 2010 (My TM filled so so it's been overwriting the older stuff), but whenever I would select one of those dates nothing would happen. IN the past I'm pretty sure I could select on any date and see what was backed up.

Is there a good tutorial out there that will show what I'm supposed to be seeing?...because I'm not able to retrieve anything, and that worries me greatly.

Thanks

Are you using Time Machine with a Wireless backup disk.
I am and have noticed that it can take up to 5 minutes before the dates on the right hand side are " populated " with the data .
Have you waited that long to see if it makes any difference ?

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
