I have this file that I want to restore, that is a system file, normally stored on /tmp.
If I open Finder, and select GO > GO TO FOLDER
I type /tmp on the window and it opens /private/tmp (???? why ?)
Anyway, the file is not there, but the file was there 5 days ago. I open time machine and it shows me an empty window If I go back in type, but if I type the name of the file on the finder search box, I see several versions of the file (one day ago, two days ago, etc.). I select one of them, but the RESTORE BUTTON is disabled. I right click on a file and select RESTORE TO, but nothing happens...
How do I select a system file from days ago from a time machine backup?
Yes, I am sure the file is there.
