    I have just installed Snow Leopard on 4 machines and on each of them unless I keep selecting the time capsule backup folder from the preferences page it is only showing time machine backups from when Snow Leopard was installed. e.g. today.

    Any ideas?

    Not sure, but I did notice that I had to manual turn TM on - even though my TC was connected. First back up was almost 7 GBs :eek: And I did an update.... not sure what gives there. :confused:

    Same here but when I go into time machine it shows only backups from today. As soon as I reselect the backup folder all the backups are there.

    After a few more backups they disappear again until I once again reselect the backup folder.

    well, I am going to do an Erase and Install after my stuff finishes copying to my TC. after the fresh install, I will just drag my media/docs back from the TC and then re-enable TM.

    just wasn't overly impressed with the upgrade of SL.

    Mine worked perfectly.
    Did a standard upgrade installation - after the install I never touched the Time Machine settings, it just kept backing up to the same backups as previously. I haven't checked whether the full history is there though...
