I can not find TimeMachine in LaunchPad, Utilities or on my Task Bar. I just reinstalled Lion and frankly forget how I go it there in the first place.

Is there another step I must go to in order to get TimeMachine usable?

Thanks,

Yes, but I used to have it in my task bar and I could right click it and select "Back up now". How can I do that?

I see I can right click the TM icon in the upper right menu bar and it says "Time Machine not configured".

How do I configure it?

Pull down the icon to "open time machine preferences", or configure it through the Time Machine preferences pane accessed by
