Changing sytem disk: restore from Time Machine rather than full copy?
Authored by: palahala on Feb 22, '09 01:54:33AM

Giving it some more thought, I can image some people might restore a backup on another drive just for testing or whatever. One indeed does not want this to result in changing some UUID in the backup, as that would render that backup useless for the original drive.

So I guess your solution is better than having Time Machine decide when to make some changes: only people who know for sure they want the UUID of the backup changed will now be able to do so, and those will understand that removing that sticker will void their warranty ;-)

Many thanks for the info!
