10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs

Same thing happened to me, but that was because I didn't follow the instructions. I had copied and pasted the script/dragged the script from inside a text file to the Terminal. That's the reason for the error. You have to save the script alone in a file, then drag the actual file icon into the Terminal window. Then it will work as shown. Aside from that, I have another issue I'll post separately.
