10.5: Reconnect Time Machine backup after drive swap
Authored by: mwittle on Oct 09, '09 12:54:23PM

I swapped my disk using the Disk Utility restore method, using the erase disk option, and that worked fine. Result was that the Time Machine sparsebundle file is now on a 1-TB drive instead of a 200-GB drive. Time Machine then ran fine nightly for a few weeks.

HOWEVER, now Time Machine posts an error message each night telling me that the disk is out of space, and is removing old backups, even though the disk still has 700-GB of space. How do I get Time Machine to recognize that the sparsebundle is now on a larger drive?
