10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs
Authored by: Zaphod42 on Apr 11, '09 05:00:03PM

This worked great for me, I bought a new MBP and transferred my old HD into the new machine.

running this script re-attached the backup volume.

although, there was an invisible file called ".00224124e6ac" at the root of my time machine HD. Every time i clicked backup now, it would say it couldn't find the backup volume, choosing change disk and reselecting the external HD would result in an error saying that I didn't have permission to edit ".00224124e6ac".

sure enough, after making invisible files visible and getting info on .00224124e6ac, only the system group had write access. I added my user, gave it read/write, re-choose the backup volume and now all is well.
