10.6: automatic re-associate Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: palahala on Dec 19, '09 06:57:52AM

Indeed, only today I found a post with a screenshot at, after I read about it on Super User. The exact wording, for the search engines:

Would you like to reuse the backup [..] with this computer?

The backup was created on a different computer. If you reuse this backup it can no longer be used by the original computer.

[Do Not Backup Now] [Create New Backup] [Reuse Backup]

I hope Apple will make it a bit more clear that "reuse" implies "keep the history" rather than, for example, "erase the old backup and use all available space for the new Mac".
