Hi there, what if you manually open Time Machine? o.O
Click on Go > Applications > Time Machine.
Remember that your Mac needs to be at least 10.5 to have the tool.
You can manually select a backup disk in Time Machine System Preferences if you want to.
- Choose From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
- From the View menu, choose Time Machine.
- Click “Select Backup Disk”.
- Choose a disk where backups will be stored, then click “Use for Backup.”
