Can't Access Time Machine Backups After Lion Install

My guess as a long time PC tech is that it has to do with some sort of registrations between one OS X and the new one (e.g. a different user name on the second OS X install). I am glad that you can still access Time Machine backups manually, I had seen that I could do that the other day and am glad Apple makes it that easy for us.

Used: 94.7 GB.
Opening the MacBook Pro (Lion, OS X 10.7.3, 2.2 GHz Intel Core Duo with 4 GB 667 MHz DDR1 SDRAM), There is only about 23 MB total.
Where are the 70 GB's?
I have only, according to Get Info, I have only 24.34 GB available.
How can I remove the 70 GB that I can't see?

This is not a Lion issue, and in fact Lion has a better way of dealing with it than was previously available. The problem is that if you erased the disk for your "clean install" it's not the same disk any more as far as Time Machine is concerned. Lion provides explicit support for remedying this.
