10.5: View exactly which files Time Machine backed up
Authored by: V.K. on Jul 18, '08 02:34:40PM
very nice but instructions for non terminal savvy people are in order. the first command should be
cd "/Volumes/TM-drive-name/Backups.backupdb/myhost"
instead of TM-drive-name put the name of your TM drive. instead of myhost put the name of your computer. It can be found in system preferences->sharing. In the second command you need to specify the full path to unix executable timedog. if after you unzip the download you put it on your desktop the command would be
~/Desktop/timedog -d 5 -l
