10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: gbullman on Oct 27, '08 05:55:46AM

I have performed this re-pair'ing twice on the same machine. Once back in June with whatever was current Leopard at the time, and then again at the beginning of October. In both cases the backups are correctly going to the existing backup tree.

Since the October re-pair'ing I'm experiencing the same behavior as far as 'Show Time Machine' (only shows present), Select Other Time Machine Disk... (shows all backups), and Time Machine Preferences... (shows correct oldest backup date).

One other difference between the June re-pairing and the October re-pairing is that in June it picked up with just the needed incremental backups, but in October it performed what was likely a full backup (got message that it was deleting the oldest full backup to make room, and then it backed up an equivalent size to the data on the boot drive).

I believe that the machine is being properly backed up, and the backups appear to be accessible via the "Select Other Time Machine Disk..." but it would be nice to understand why "Show Time Machine" is not working properly.
