    Time Machine Issue
    I have two MyBook WD hard drives. One I connect with an ethernet cord, and the other through my home wireless network router and is my chosen place of backup for my Time Machine. I have three Mac Book laptops which have all been backed up on both hard drives multiple times. I need to clear space on all three Mac Books so that I can continue working with them. However, I cannot seem to find my photos on the hard drive backed using Time Machine. I don't want to delete any photos on my laptops until I know that I can recover them from my wireless hard drive through Time Machine.

    Are you using iPhoto to store your photos. If so, the solution is to restore the iPhoto library files from the Time Machine backup.

    The procedure varies a bit depending upon which version of iPhoto and OS version. Here are the current directions for the current version of iPhoto and Lion/Mountain Lion.. If you are using something else let us know what so we can give better directions.
