I am running lion with the most current updates. When I open time machine, i go back in time to about a month ago. I know I had a sub folder in my documents folder. I can't find it. If it was deleted from today's documents folder, does that delete it from time machine backups?

Thanks in advance.

It will only be removed from the most current backup you make after the folder was deleted. What you backed up a month ago should still be there. If you can't find that sub folder, it's possible it was not backed up or maybe not there at that time.
