    Hi everybody, I loose the computer during the trip so now need to get some files from back up from another mac. Data was backed up on WD MyBookLive wireless. Have two back up files and need to open the one which is not belong to my computer.

    I tried as recomended: "you can do it using TM interface. plug in the drive in the other computer, control-click on TM in the dock and select "browse other TM disks". This will let you browse that TM disk as you usually would when using TM normally and restore what you want where you want to."

    But the list Brows other TM discs is emty.

    I also tried to map a network drive afp://MyBookLive.local but is still does not show up in the list of TM discs.

    So I can use this disc for back up of my data but can not open another computer back up.

    Thank you in advance.

    Finally it works. But I was need to log out from my account and log in as guest. Then option-click on TM in menu and select "browse other TM disks". Can see other back up on same drive but can not access. Then i come back to my admin account and try the same and in this time can see other backup. So I have no idea why it doesn't show up at first time, but at last it works great.
