When trying to restore iPhoto Library, I get an error message (in native language dutch) stating that I, as a user, donot have rights to restore. This is very strange as:

1) it is yesterdays 1:1 copy of this computer (an Imac) on the right TM,

2) I am the right user (and owner) and

3) the rights of the TM copy are properly set R/W.


Furthermore: I cannot reset  the file rights on the TM. I cannot copy directly from TM to another Finder map (nor dragging nor copying). I cannot doublle click the TM file, while iPhoto starts loading but warns that the file is not the Main Library (which is true) and doesnot proceed to upload.


It seems that back-up files are locked for some time. At least at OSX Lion both option and time could be selected by the user. Mountain Lion however doesnot have this option. Recommended changes using app BatChmod, is too risky to my liking.


How do I restore iPhoto Libary?


Please help!
