    Hi there,

    Last week I updated my Macbook straight from Leopard to Lion. To do that I've used the USB flashdrive offered by Apple. That worked great. After the update I restored all my settings and docs with my time machine. That worked great too.

    But now I want to restore some files I trashed a while before the update. These files should be still on my time machine. But the problem is that none of the backups made during the time my mac ran on Leopard are reachable.
    I guess they are still there, since the drive is still completeply full and I can't really imagine Lion would delete these files.

    Does anyone here know how to reach/enter these old backups?

    Thanks!
    Rien, The Netherlands.

    Have you tried entering the TM backup folder via Finder?
