    Hi,

    by default the iPhoto Library is in the "Pictures" folder.

    Path :

    Macintosh HD / Users / yourusername / Pictures / iPhoto Library.photolibrary

    These are in my iPhoto file
    AlbumData2.xml
    iPhoto.ipspot
    Metadata Backup

    None give access to my photos - what do I miss

    The iPhoto Library should hold much more folders.

    Anyway, if you want to restore your photos, you must restore the whole "iPhoto Library" from Time Machine.

    Thats the problem - these are the only files in iphoto Library. How do I avoid this in future (not backing up correctly)

    I don't understand : Time Machine backups the whole iPhoto Library.

    I don't know what happened.

    Just be specific, try this: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4927

    I think it's what you're already doing, but we need to be on the same page. If you continue to have trouble, please post some screenshots.
