lol Remember you said to launch Terminal, type in the sudo command then drag my time machine icon into terminal window?
Okay, I see, "The whole drop" part confused me. I get what you were saying now.
Yes, the vsdbutil -d command. Then reboot from the DVD to rebuild the whole drive from TM again from a backup before you recently restored, from one before you lost your pics. If you think Apr 22 is a pretty complete backup use it.
Have you got the DVD drive working? We need to get that worked out before we can rebuild anyway. Try what I suggested to see if it is the DVD drive, the disk , or some system corruption.
Still busy on this end, don't know if I can iChat tonight. Tomorrow may be shot, a possible 2 hour window in the mid afternoon, and Sunday later afternoon/early evening should be good.
Had to click on TM drive icon and drill down to an older date, one that I couldn't access by going through iPhoto into TM. So I get down to the date of backup, user, my iMac, pictures folder. The folder has a "-" sign on it. I do a get info and unlock it and add myself with read/write privileges. For some reason I was not on the list. Now I open iPhoto and go into TM through iPhoto to the date I just gave my self privileges for and viola I restore my photos. Hope this makes sense....
I still have a blank CD in the superdrive, not sure what I'm going to do about that.
