10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: michaelnewsom on Jul 08, '09 03:11:12AM

tried to get around the permissions problem by using finder (with hidden files shown) - renamed the hidden .MAC file and the sparsebundle.

I can now enter time machine but it shows no backups. However, if I Browse Other Time Machine Disks I can access the backups.

I suspect this means if I do a new backup now, it will do a full backup, not an incremental one.

it's nice to get access to the backup - but any thoughts about how to actually pair them up for real?

As I usually change my hardware once in a year: Why isn't there a programm/script in the market that does exactly what is described here? I would spend 10 bucks for it and probably others too.

Regards,

Because it only applies when you keep the same harddisk?

(A script for the abovementioned instructions exists, see 10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs.)
