    Hi all

    Just downloaded the new software update (10.5.7) & now my time machine backup doesn't appear to work. I get the following image.

    I have been to the preferences but can't see the external harddrive there??

    Anyone have any ideas??

    Thanks

    log on as an admin.
    select the drive, press command+i
    at the bottom make sure the correct user account is "Read & Write"

    (you may need to 'unlock' it - little lock in the bottom right)
