Need help with Time Machine and my external hard drive
by Lukecocomics - 7/27/12 3:07 PM
I backed up my computer on an external hard drive and later changed my Mac's name ("Luke S*****'s Macbook Pro" to just "Luke's Mac"). Now I can't access any of those old backups from "Luke S*****'s Macbook Pro" because when I open Time Machine it only shows the "Luke's Mac" backups. Now there's a massive amount of space on my hard drive I can't access, delete or alter. When I click on the hard drive's icon on my desktop it has a folder for each of my macbook's names, all dated accordingly but I can't move them into one folder and I don't want to manually delete them for fear it would brick the hard drive or hurt my laptop. Thanks for any help!
