10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: krusty76 on Apr 12, '09 01:56:07AM

I wish I had seen this comment an hour ago. I missed one step of the process (renaming the sparse bundle) and so Time Machine attempted to create a completely new backup and failed due to limited space. When I corrected that, it seemed to start okay, but has been sitting here for a long time with no progress. Turns out, I think the previous failed update modified the cookie ... so it has to do some sort of "deep search". For hundreds of GB that could take a while (especially since I am doing it over WiFi).

Anyway, if anyone else messes up first, make sure you keep this part in mind before fixing any issues and moving on!
