    time machine for old files
    Can I use time machine to find, retrieve, and rename an old numbers file. I want to put the old version and the current version next to each other on the screen for comparison. It seems once I find an old file using time machine, I can't do anything with it. I can't even open it in numbers.

    You need to restore it first. But before you do that rename your current version, then do the restore.
    Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.

    You could use Superduper for a bootable back up and then use FIWI for a comparsion on screen.
