My macbook a few months ago got transplanted with a nice new larger 'brain' (harddrive) and upgraded to Snow Leopard. All seemed well. Until Friday. It died. Total Hard drive failure. I got my old drive plugged back in, but it's rather like my macbook is a coma patient waking with several months gap in the memory. Naturally I figured I'd just drag the files I needed off Time Machine until I replaced the bad drive. WRONG I go into Time Machine and all I see are the Leopard backups. I totally did not see this coming. I backed it up a mere two weeks ago. They must be on there. Yet the mac can't see them. Nor can I reupgrade to Snow until I get that hard drive replaced: the whole reason I waited to go to Snow was that the original drive was too small and full. So can anyone tell me if this is just a quirk of my mac? Gremlins? Or is there some odd reason Leopard won't access Snow's Time Machine data?
