I think I used the "back up" or "time machine" function on my (old, no longer accessible) macbook air.
yep. see it.
"verify disk" is shadowed an inactionable when I click on the "2TB WD My Passport 0748". However, there is a "sub" disk shown labeled "disk2s1". When I click on it, I was able to select verify. However, the response I received was "Verify volume failed: Unrecognized file system." What should I do now?
No, I do not.
i think that worked!
I'm going through to see if all the files are here... picture files say they can not be used as the "main library" since it's from Time Machine. hope I can resolve that easily as these are the main files I'm worried about. Lots of photos of my kids from the last 5 years.
thanks. photos all seem to be here. whew. any idea why videos from the backup wouldn't have any sound available? they run like animated gifs. weird.
some were from an iPhone.... some were created via SnapzPro.... each video from the backup, either runs without audio (and looks very choppy) or doesn't show either video or audio. When I click on any of the volume buttons at the top right of the keyboard, it simply shows a "prohibited" sort of symbol (circle with line through it). any ideas?
hmmmmm. the iPhone videos are opening in iPhoto (?). And others in Quicktime.
also, it seems my backup had all photos saved in iPhoto. I continue to get an error message upon trying to open iPhoto from the backup:
"The iPhoto library is a Time Machine backup, and so cannot be used as the main library. Reopen iPhoto with the Option key held down to choose another library."
If this qualifies as a "new question" and I need to initiate a new just answers cycle, please let me know. I do not wish to take advantage of your great help.
