    I was trying to remember how you do this exactly, since it said you could when I was restoring it.

    Anyways, I fully restored my Mini, and I wanted to get my iPhoto off of my Time Machine. However, it says that I don't have permission to drag it off of the Time Machine...maybe I'm doing it wrong (supposed to use a program to do this?)

    In the Menubar, Click the TM icon, then Browse other Time Machine disks.

    I only have the one hooked up to it. So, it's not like I have multiple Backups...

    Open TM Pref ... click Change Disk, then choose None. After that, you will see the option to browse other TM disks.
