    I just installed a new SSD. Time Machine is active. It says it is saving data. When you open TM, it opens the times that it saved data except there is noting in the boxes and the button to choose a backup to restore is greyed out, not allowing to choose anything as there isn't anything to choose. The TM says that it has backed upped 350 gb of data. There is nothing there however. I rebooted, disconnected external drive, even reformatted and started over. Nothing seems to work. Suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone care to take a crack at this?

    I observe similar behaviour and I believe it's a bug. If you see the release notes for 10.10.1 here http://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204017 this problem was supposed to be fixed, but it wasn't for me.

    Time Machine is beyond buggy in Yosemite. Try clicking on Scott's iMac under devices and navigating from Macintosh HD there and you may find that works. Alternatively, add your Macintosh HD to Favorites and click on that.

    For me, I need to go to the Macintosh HD in order to scroll back in time. It no longer works from any other folders.
