I'm attempting to recover data from an external drive used as a Time Machine backup for a now deceased user. The Mac that it was attached to is now long gone. My first attempt lets me generally read the disk, but I'm locked out of the individual user documents folders. This is a business device and I do have administrator passwords, but I'm uncertain on the correct approach to gain access to those folders.
Is there a way to successfully gain access to this data and how do I do it?
