10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs
Authored by: Russ Brown on Dec 19, '08 08:08:40AM

I do not think you need to do this. They just changed my logic board and I had the Time Machine problem. After searching, I found that all I needed to do was open Time Machine preferences and select Change Disk and re-select the drive that I used before. Did it yesterday and it is running fine.

Unless there has been a change in 10.5.6, choosing another disk only allowed you to do just that. It would build a whole new backup from scratch, not use your existing Time Machine backup.

I too had the logic board failure and could not select the old backup without modifying a number of things. Anyway, if they updated this that's great news. If not, then this script will be a real time saver for people that's for certain.
