I have a Time Capsule that I have had for about a year...and I am trying to go back as far as I can but time machine is only showing me the last 3 months. Is there a reason for this? Can I go further back? Thanks.

Not sure, but ...

I was under the impression it's all about the total disk space available?
If you only backed up a small amount of data over that 1 year period, I suspect you could go back the full year to restore versions of files -- since keeping a year's worth of copies of your data didn't fill it up?
