Might need the mæstro on this one.
Any file with a dot in front should be invisible in Finder.
.Inprogress looks like a temporary file storing content being backed-up while TM compares it with the current dataset.
Which means (if true) the backup wasn't complete when you disconnected.
I can't contact Pondini directly to look at this, but maybe one of the higher ranked contributors can give him the "heads up".

would be incredibly grateful for an answer to this...
i did a back up in november before i went away for two months. along the way my internal HD started failing, and in the melee of trying to grab files before it went down, i plugged in the ext HD with time machine on it. the backup failed doing this, and now the entire backup is a .inprogress file, and i can't seem to transfer the files in any way. i also don't want to delete the .inprogress file because i assume it will delete the entirety of the 500GB contents :/
to compound this, the backup is also case sensitive whereas my new internal one isn't... what to do what to do??!
