OS  Version:  Mountain Lion.   Computer:  I mac Latest one.

Time machine is full and wont let me access the files,, in fact I cant even see the files.  It wont show them when I go into backup screen.

It shows it was backed upped yesterday, but cannot do nothing with it.  I need to delete some files to make room.  (I thought this did it on its own)

Thanks

George

Use Disk Utility to check the external disk for errors, and may as well check the computer's internal disk as well. Also check permissions on both.
