    Hi Guys,

    I've had time machine running for about 10 months. Today I needed to rely on it for the first time to restore a MySQL database I deleted by accident.

    To my horror the last backup in Time Machine was SIX MONTHS out of date even though I work on this database EVERY DAY!!

    I've completely lost faith in it and I'm feeling really let down.

    Is this a common problem? Have I got a setting wrong or is Time Machine just a complete frickin waste of time??

    Check under the settings to see if time machine is on or if you have instructed it not to include that folder or the parent folder in the backup.
