10.5: Use multiple drives for Time Machine backups
Authored by: palahala on Feb 14, '09 08:04:54AM

(As per the original hint, it is of course not sufficient to have a file name that matches the MAC address, and contents that match /var/db/.TimeMachine.Cookie, to make a drive being used for a specific computer. The extended attributes must be set as well. All of these will be fine when copying an existing backup onto a second drive.)
