I've been using Time Machine with a Time Capsule for several months with no problem. Today I decide to open Time Machine but it won't open! I tried "Open Time Machine" from the menu bar icon and I tried TimeMachine.app from the Dock. Nothing happens.

    Im assuming you mean the +System Preferences > Time Machine+ window, not the Time Machine "Star Wars" display?

    If so, try Restarting your Mac.

    If that doesn't help, it sounds like the preferences file may be corrupted. Try a "full reset" of Time Machine per #A4 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting (or use the link in *User Tips* at the top of the +Time Machine+ forum).

    Of course, you won't be able to note the current settings.

    If you mean the "Star Wars" display, see #E4 in Troubleshooting.
