View Full Version : Can't find my Time Machine Backups

May 12, 2012, 12:53 PM

I recently backed up my MBP to a external harddrive that has my iMac backups on it. I'm trying to restore a app and it's system files through Time Machine. I did see my iMac backups before I backed up my MBP. Whenever I go into TM I only see my MPB backups. I tried cntrl+clicking Time Machine and the option clicking on the apple bar and I only see the dates of the backups not the actual backups themselves.

I would try Migration Assistant but it's too broad. I only need on Application and it only migrates all of them. I don't want to go through the trouble of deleting all of the apps except for one of them.

Thanks for the Help

Why not just reinstall the app, rather than restoring it from a backup that you can't find?
