Time Machine Backups from my MBP show up in two colours - the usual Purple, and also a Grey/White. My iMac Backups are all Purple. Anyone else seeing this?

Grey backups on your MBA are the local snapshots, something only laptops do (unless you force enable on your iMac AFAIK). They are local backups that are made whenever your external drive is not connected. Purple backups are the backups on your external drive.

Hope that helps! :)

Perfect - that makes total sense - thank you!
