Extract Directly from Time Machine

Normally you use Time Machine to restore lost data in a file like this: within the Time Machine interface, you go back to the time the file was not yet messed up, and you restore it to replace the file you have now.

You can also elect to keep both, but the restored file takes the name and place of the current one. So, if you have made changes since the backup took place that you would like to keep, they are lost, or you have to mess around a bit to merge changes, rename files, and trash the unwanted one.

As an alternative, you can browse the Time Machine backup volume directly in the Finder like any normal disk, navigate through the chronological backup hierarchy, and find the file which contains the lost content.

Once you've found it, you can open it and the current version of the file side-by-side, and copy information from Time Machine's version of the file into the current one, without losing any content you put in it since the backup was made.

Google Unveils Its Self-Driving Car

Send Article to a Friend

Google is now an automaker of sorts. It has built a prototype of its long-brewing self-driving car, which looks like a mix between a Volkswagen Beetle and a Smart Fortwo. The car features no manual controls, and, as a precaution, is limited to 25 miles per hour. Google has produced a video showing it being test-driven by a number of people — including a blind man.favicon follow link

I never thought about the blind. It would give my dad his mobility back.
