Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2008 1:06 PM (in response to GPM)I wanted to add that if these were either photos or email accessed by either iPhoto or Mac Mail, open the application and then click on the Time Machine icon and go back when those photos/mail existed. Hopefully theses files were on your drive long enough that TM did a backup. If you deleted them just as quickly as you received/imported them, you may be out of luck.iMac 24" 3GB, Mac OS X (10.5.3), 0.5T TC
Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2008 11:33 AM (in response to GPM)Thanks for the information, even if it was what I didn't want to hear. I'm disappointed to learn that Time Machine doesn't do what Apple advertises, i.e. "back up everything".
The items in the trash were put there before I installed TC and activated TM, so I'm afraid they are lost.PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2008 9:47 AM (in response to V.K.)I trashed the dated folders inside TM backup folder(Backups.backupdb)and kept only the one that says "latest" ...the rest are still in trash....can i restored them from there???
When i open TM it shows only Today(now)....and if I try to back up it says the file is too large...
Did I loose everything?? Can I restore anything at all??
