Can't get Bridge to access my Time-Machine backup. I've been looking for a solution for a while, but can't find anything useful. A link to a supposedly previous chat on the issue does not work. any help would be appreciated. 
Thanks

This is by design, you have to restore those files to your hard drive before most software can see them. They are stored in a disk image and not on disk like regular files. FWIW, I believe that Windows Backup has the same limitation.

I don't think this is the case. I was able to view images on Time Machine backup on Bridge in the past.

This is the case. A developer needs to specifically support Time Machine and Adobe doesn't. Newer versions of Time Machine use APFS snapshots and Adobe will probably never support those.
