Time Machine Folder Calculating forever

-0001-11-30 | Default

Hey Guys,
I have a Time Machine Backup folder from July. If I try to connect to my MacBook Pro and read contents of the folders, I am unable to.
There is a red '-' Icon attached to some folders and when I click on them, the preview pane shows 'Calculating' and it stays like that forever (I left it overnight). From Terminal 'You have no permissions to access' or something like that.
There is a lot of stuff I need in that backup. Any help is really appreciated.
Thanks guys!
Uday

Yosemite is a dog..
Do you have another computer on the network running some functional Mac OS??
If not buy a USB drive. plug it into the Mac.. boot from recovery and try and use the TM to restore the whole backup (at a suitable time for your files) to the USB drive. Do this over ethernet with no wireless turned on.
Once you have a working recovery restart the computer from Yosemite.. and pluck the files you need from the USB drive.
You can also have a try with finder to do a manual restore.
Can't access old files on time capsule
