10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs
Authored by: AveryH on Sep 08, '09 10:14:00AM

Thanks for the script. I'm reaching an error that I hope someone can help me out with.

After following the instructions given, once I type in my password and press enter, Terminal gives me the following message:

/Users/avery/Desktop/Repair Time Machine.rtf: line 1: {rtf1ansiansicpg1252cocoartf949cocoasubrtf540: command not found
/Users/avery/Desktop/Repair Time Machine.rtf: line 2: syntax error near unexpected token `}'
/Users/avery/Desktop/Repair Time Machine.rtf: line 2: `{\fonttbl\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Monaco;}'

(Repair Time Machine is what I named the text file with the code.)

Any thoughts to help? Thanks in advance!

Seems to me you saved it in Rich Text Format (RTF), which allows for formatting like bold and italic. It should be plain text instead.

In TextEdit, choose menu Format » Make Plain Text. (If the menu says "Make Rich Text", then your file is already plain text.)
