10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: robinthesilver on Aug 17, '08 03:20:25AM

I'm a bit of a mac novice ( so much so that I didn't understand that I needed to take out the $ at the beginning of every line ), but I eventually worked my way through the hint.

It seems to have half worked on my system. When I ran TM it backed up into my original folder (rather than making a new one with a '2' suffixed on), and it seemed to perform an incrememtal backup rather than a full one (it backed up about 12gb, rather than 60gb - which sounds right to me). All seems fine and dandy thus far.

The problem comes when I explore my backups. When I click 'Enter Time Machine' I can only see the backup that I have just made. If I want to see an older backup then I need to select 'Browse Other Time Machine Disks' and then select the disk that I'm already backing up to.

I'm somewhat flumoxed, please help
