I need to restore to a specific time when Time Machine was working fine. Currently the Time Machine drive is lock, I don't have access and I don't have permission to unlock even though I'm a logged in as the Admin.  It's a long story (not really, it's just an embarrassing one), but all permissions on all files were reset - including system extensions etc. AND I find the Time Machine is locked.
