I am very new to the time machine option on mac and now facing an issue with it. I have made a backup of my whole mac in June this year. Two days I wanted to access a few files that in the meantime have been deleted. I connected my external drive (not an apple time capsule though) and was perfectly able to access any of the old files I needed. That day I was not able to finish everything so in the evening I disconnected the drive again. Today I wanted to continue, however, now I cannot access any backup from June anymore. I simply can't click on it anymore. I realized that when I connected it two days ago it automatically started a new backup as I had the setting on "back up automatically". This new update now shows as "in progress" since I probably disconnected the device before the back up finished (not being aware that it had even started). Is there any way I can still access the June version? When I go to time machine info tab, it tells me the last back up is actually from June, since the one of 2 days ago wasn't finished. Would it help to delete the in progress file?

What can I do?? I was so happy when I saw two days ago that I was able to access all the files, and then today all the hopes were destroyed again :'(
