View Full Version : View Trash in Time Machine?

May 5, 2009, 04:35 PM
Hi I deleted several folders and photos from my computer. I've emptied my recycle bin a couple times. I want to restore what I had deleted. The problem is that I've got 100's of folders and I don't remember exactly what I deleted. How do I view the trash in time machine so that I can see what I had deleted and restore it. Every time I open up trash and click on time machine it opens as my user folders and not trash. Please help. Thanks

I'm pretty sure trash is not backed up by default.


I think you are meant to navigate to where the file was BEFORE you deleted it and then restore it from that location.
