How do I find a folder, that should be in my backup folders on an external hard drive using a Mac? I can't find them any where.

use Spotlight. of course this assumes you allowed Spotlight to index your external drive and that you're using a new enough version of OSX that has Spotlight.

If not, there's always the find command from the shell.
