Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am excited to get started with you.Once the site history has been erase, you can no longer retrieve or view it unless there was a time machine backup performed before your boyfriend erased the site history or if a security software monitor was installed.
Do you know if he has a time machine backup?
Unless you have his password XXXXX his time capsule, you will not be able to access it. Is the computer in question his personal computer? or is it a joint computer that you both share?
So do you have the password XXXXX the time capsule?
which is the external hard drive
Are you using safari?
Ok within the backup, you should see a backup folder
Wait is it an airport express or a time capsule?
Open finder. (click on the happy face icon in the dock)
In the left column under shared, you should see the time capsule listed
When you click on it, it will advise you to enter the password. Once connected if a time machine backup was performed, it will reveal folders
Click on this icon in the dock
Try this, Click anywhere on your desktop. At the top menu right next to the apple logo in the upper left corner, you will notice the menu option will say finder
Now choose File (next to finder ) and choose New window
A finder window will pop up
In the left column under Shared, do you see the time capsule listed?
Ok, lets first see if the time capsule is even set up. Click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type in time machine
Is it set to off or on?
Ok so that means a time machine backup was not performed. This means you will not be able to retreive any site history at this time. You can however enable time machine now so moving forward you can have a backup
Are you sure you have a time capsule? A time capsule is a router and a hard drive which allows you to backup wirelessly. If you do not have a time capsule, do you have a regular external hard drive. This is what a time capsule looks like

Airport is just a router, it allows you to connect to the internet. It does not store any data
Thats because there is no option to scan. Your airport does not scan anything. It just connects to wireless networks
Here is what you need to do. You can either purchase an external hard drive that you can connect to your computer so Time machine can backup everything to it. Or (depending on how extreme you are willing to go) you can purchase an activity monitoring software which recored emails, internet activity etc.
Awww, Im so sorry. I can imagine how devastating that must feel
There are a ton of internet and computer monitoring sites. Here are a few.. They range from $50 and up. Some come with free trials so you can do that before you opt in to pay for the full software http://www.spectorsoft.comhttp://www.webwatcher.comhttp://www.sniperspymac.com
I forgot to make the links clickable
There are a lot more out there. Some come with the bells and whistles that you may not need. So I recommend doing a google search on Internet monitoring software Mac and looking through the ones that best fit your needs
You are sooo welcome. I wish you all the best :)
