finder – How do I entry the Library and Downloads folder from one other Time Machine backup in Ventura?


On a brand new Mac, I linked the Time Machine disk from my outdated Mac and now wish to copy particular recordsdata out of the ~/Library and ~/Downloads folders from a previous Time Machine backup. I can navigate to my residence folder in a dated backup on the TM disk with out hassle, and I can activate viewing hidden recordsdata within the Finder and see the contents of my residence folder together with hidden recordsdata; nevertheless, I am unable to go contained in the Library, Downloads, Paperwork, and sure different folders. They’ve a crimson “don’t enter” image over them, as proven on this instance:

How can I’m going contained in the Library different such blocked folders in a Time Machine backup?

Further notes:

  • The backup is from a earlier Mac, not the present one, so coming into Time Machine after which on the lookout for the recordsdata in there doesn’t work.
  • My query seems to be a reproduction of this one from 2012, which has a solution that’s irrelevant to the issue at hand (specifically, I haven’t got an issue viewing hidden recordsdata; I’ve an issue accessing sure folders)
