10.5: Reconnect Time Machine backup after drive swap
Authored by: badtux on Nov 07, '09 09:46:34PM

This doesn't appear to work under Snow Leopard. Problem #1: fsaclctl does not exist in Snow Leopard. Solution: Install /usr/sbin/fsaclctl out of the Leopard install disk that came with my Macbook Pro, from /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages/BSD.pkg , using whatever pkg extractor you desire (I used Pacifist) to make it work (extract only the single file, not the whole thing!). Problem #2, even after executing the commands in question with the up-to-date disk UID, Time Machine did a full backup of my just-restored data anyhow the next time it ran. So obviously something changed in Time Machine between 10.5 and 10.6 that broke this hint. Sigh!
