I have all my data backed up on an external hd via Time Machine. We're travelling with one macbook (not mine) and I'd like to be able to bring (at least some of) my data along to do work. I'm wondering is it advisable to access time machine backups on an external hd connected to a different macbook than the one where the data is coming from? is it even advisable to attempt to access the data on a Time Machine backup other than to restore lost data on a local hd? i hope I'm making sense here. any suggestions to help me do what i'm talking about?
