Used Time Machine today.  Seems the memory used up in the Seagate Backup Plus devise doesn't equal the space used on my Macbook Pro.  I tried to launch IPhoto from the Seagate device but it says "You can't open the application IPhoto because it is in a Time Machine backup."  If that's the case, how can I tell if my backup was successful?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Seagate Backup Plus & Time Machine
