Im suprised that Apple specifically made some kind of module for iPhoto to show up in Time Machine but didnt bother to do one for iTunes... oh well.. V2 maybe...

Anyone notice any other apps that show other than Finder and iPhoto?


UPDATE: Ok... Mail does too ... and address book (thanks psychofreak, just checked and confirmed)

While iTunes doesn't work yet, i'm sure one could just open finder to the iTunes music folder and use TM with that to recover deleted music.

Yeah bizare

Yeah it's weird that they didn't make iTunes work. It is a very obvious and strange oversight. It doesn't make sense to go through your music folder and then look for individual files, especially when iPhoto works great with it!

What's stranger to me is that if you look at iTunes and the "traffic lights" close/minimize/expand buttons, they are still the same "Tiger colors". Put up any other group of traffic lights from the Finder or iPhoto or whatever, and you will see.

My only guess is that they are about to release a newer version of iTunes to fix this and make it work with Time Machine as well.

From what I understand, it is the actually applications that will need to be updated (not Time Machine itself).

So iTunes 7.5 (or 8) should have Time Machine support.
