So apparently my hard drive died recently on my iMac. Have not diagnosed or done anything with it yet. I had a time machine which is fine. Took my time machine to moms house who has an iMac, to plug in and check it out. Of first note, it won’t accept it as a time Machine. Her iMac will not let it sync up and use the hard drive as a time machine. I can access the drive from Finder and get to all the backups on the drive. Everything is there, everything EXCEPT photos. I can drive down to the Pictures photo where all the photos from iPhoto are supposed to reside, but it’s telling me I cannot import the files!!! I’ll get the exact pop-up verbiage, but what the heck is going on here??
