10.5: Reconnect Time Machine backup after drive swap
Authored by: david29 on Aug 02, '09 11:33:23PM

I am amazed that no one has written some type of script or small app to handle this issue. I would gladly pay a few dollars for a solution.

I have tried the method on the page several times but cannot seem to get it to work. I am giving it another shot. Wish me luck!

10.5: Reconnect Time Machine backup after drive swap

Hmmm, for a moment I thought you're also known as hartmut... ;-)

Please note that this only applies when using the exact same harddisk contents. You should not do this to associate an old backup with a new Mac. I guess that limits the market for fool-proof fully automated solutions. There's a script for the original hint though: 10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs. But some troubleshooting skills are required in case things fail, so I'd not really recommend such script if the manual steps are too difficult.
