I like to spend time with my lovely wife, our two beautiful daughters, and our dog. I'm also a fan of geek humor, and I've been known to flip out and write code… elegant code, if I'm really lucky.

@Ashley I did try the case-sensitive option, still no dice. Verify Disk said everything was fine, but it pretty much had to be corrupt files making Migration Assistant not recognize that it was a Time Machine backup. I went ahead with a manual restore approach about 4 days ago, and things have gone smoothly so far. Thanks for the help, though. I'll leave the question open in case somebody can point to something official from Apple explaining the actual cause.

@Buscar웃 OK, I just re-indexed overnight and did a search for a file that I'm pretty sure only exists in one of my Time Machine backups: Spotlight didn't find it. What does that tell us?

@Buscar웃 Spotlight? I can find files on the external drive if I type their name into Spotlight, so I guess so. Does Spotlight have some special TimeMachine integration? If so, I don't know how to test it (I usually use Alfred instead of Spotlight).
