I have an imac and a Time Machine. My videocard and harddisk ware defect and replaced.
I restored the backup but now I can't find my photo's!!
When I start Time machine up all the days are black??
Does it means that I lost all of my photo's?
Meanwhile the Time Machine shows the massage that the system is checking the backup.
As a guess, I'd say you had organized your photos in external folders, having deselected the option in iPhoto's preferences to copy them to the library. I suspect that option is now selected, and the photos are inside the library where you wouldn't see them in the Finder.
