When I want to recover some files in time machine without doing ⌘ R how do i do it?
Go to time machine symbol at top of screen select drop down "Enter Time Machine" select the date and file you want to restore from and select restore from a right hand click.
I thought so the problem was when I opened time machine there we no entries showing?
I've read this sentence 3 times. It makes absolutely no sense.
Time Machine was only showing windows that were empty
You don't need to go via TimeMachine app to restore files. You can do the same in Finder. Just mount the correct backup volume. If it's on network drive, you mount the sparsebundle first.
That sounds like you have no backups.
That is what I was going to say. You beat me.
Time machine opens to the folder that you have showing, when you enter time machine, so if you open time machine from desktop and you have nothing on your desktop the window will be empty in time machine. When in time machine, if you click on all my files does it show any files. Also when you click on the time machine symbol it will tell you when the last backup was.
Just use Finder to navigate to the folder where the files you want to recover and then use the Time Machine symbol on the menu bar. If you have backups, those files will show up.
