I have just discovered that some of my QuickTime videos that I use for teaching are missing. They were there before I updated to Mavericks. The ones that remained where in an FLV format which I converted using an app I downloaded from the  AppStore. I though I would recover the missing videos using Time Machine. For some reason TM will only go back as far as September 21st. The hard drive that has the TM backups shows many backups dated prior to September but TM doesn’t see them. I really hope I can get these videos back. They would be expensive to replace.

Thank you for your help.

MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9)
