The reset password option doesn't give me access to the Time Machine disk.
As far as I can tell, the data is still on the Time Machine drive. I can move a directory from the Time Machine backup to the hard drive on the Mac and change disk permissions and then access the files. However, on the actual Time Machine drive, I cannot see the contents of directories that have permissions:
Nor can I change the permissions.
I have done a disk repair and the backup disk seems to be okay.
Any suggestions for how to access archival Time Machine data from dates prior to the system restore?
Thanks for the assistance.
