When I open time machine, I see the window with its many stacked windows. On the right is the list of old backups. BUT, I cannot open any of those old backups after the middle of December. HELP :-)
Boy, I've never run accross any backup App as cantankerous as TM!
Have you looked through Pondini's extensive TM help site?
Can't imaging something not being covered there.
