    Question How can I access Time Machine backup data from other computer
    I have this case.

    I own a MacBook Pro and I bought a time capsule a year ago.
    All this time I was backing up my data using time machine.

    Last week I bought a new MacBook Pro.
    When I started the new MacBook I followed the procedure to migrate my data from the time capsule.
    The restore process completed successfully and I have all my data in my new MacBook.
    Now I use time machine to backup my new laptop in time-capsule.

    However, when I enter time machine from the new MacBook, I can only see the backups taken from this machine.
    I cannot see all the backups I have for the last year, unless I use my old MacBook to enter time machine !

    Is there something I can do to be able to see all the previous backups using my new MacBook ?

    Thanking you in advance.

    You can access it by browsing to your TC in Finder.
    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.
