Question: Time Machine backups gone missing
I'm trying to find some lost photos from Time Machine, but for some unbelievable reason, Time Machine only has backups from March 1st 2018 even if I've had it set up for years and years.
Is there some way I could recover my old backups to be able to find the files I'm missing?
My setup has been using two external HD's for Time Machine: a network drive (MyBookLive) and a FW drive connected to the computer (AUDIO). I've already gone through the backups on the other drive, but as there's a big gap of no backups in the time period I'd need I was hoping I could find them on the network drive. The drive has never been even close to full.
On the AUDIO -drive I can find a TimeMachine-folder and see all the backups as separate files and folders.
But on the network-drive I have two folders:
- an empty folder called "TimeMachineBackup"
- a folder called "TimeMachine" with only one large file "Myname - MacBookPro" 376,52 Gt
Is there any hope I could be able to dig out older backups from this network drive, as for some reason I don't have backups from the needed time period on the other drive.
Again, this setup and backups have certainly been running for years and years. I do not understand why my most recent backup is only a few days old!
Many thanks for your help!
