    Hey all,

    I just got a new external HD (WD MyBook 7200rpm w/firewire) and am using it as a Time Machine backup for my MBP. Anyway, I was playing around with it after it did it's first massive backup, and when I went into the app with all the swirly space things, but nothing came up in the window with had my latest back up. Instead, it read 495gb free space, 0 items. I did another back up to make sure, and again, 0 items. Any reason why?

    Cheers,
    H

    Look in Time Machine settings and make sure you are backing up to the correct drive. It sounds like you sent the backup to another drive?
