I have to get a few files from my iMac's backups. They're custom files so I can't redownload them and I can't put them on a flash drive. I also have some other things I need to put on my MPB. My External Hardrive has my MPB's and my iMac's backups on it. I can only access the MPB's. I tried option & control clicking to 'Browse Other Disks' and it doesnt work. When I go into the Finder to my old backups and try to open time machine my Finder crashes and I have to resart my computer. My External HD is a Seagate Free Agent



MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
