    A curiosity; the desktop icon for the firewire disc I use as my Time Machine backup has recently reverted to the standard external firewire disk icon. Time Machine itself works as normal. Anyone have an idea why this might happen?

    In TM prefs, are automatic back-ups tuned off?

    I checked, it was on. While in there I hit "change disk" and reselected the same disk, the icon turned back to the familiar Time Machine Disk icon. Now I can sleep at night :)
