I have been using Time Machine to back up my school folders, on a My Passport, for 2 years now, I have never needed to restore files until now.

I opened it today to only find files from today. It says I have some 240ish GB used already, but I cant view anything older than today. I know I should have some PSD and CSW files on it.

    You are using the TimeMachine app to browse to your files or Finder? – LH16 Aug 10 '17 at 18:51

You need to use the Time Machine app to browse your Time Machine disk rather than looking through the disk with Finder.

  1. Navigate to the folder where the files/folders are missing in Finder.
  2. Open Time Machine.app.
  3. Select the files/folders to restore and click Restore.
