Unable to restore file from Apple Time Machine backup

Hi, I’ve been using a WD 4TB My Cloud Home Personal Cloud to back up my iMac and a MacBook Air using Time Machine. On a daily basis, TM seems to work fine and backs up on a regular schedule. I’m looking for a file from about a month ago, so I go into Time Machine, the folder says that it’s loading, but it never loads the folder and after a while, Time Machine automatically bounces me to the backup that was performed yesterday. Any thoughts?

Well, I seemed to have solved my own problem. I went back one day in TM using the arrows which brought me to a backup from yesterday. From there, I selected the date one month ago and it loaded very quickly.
