10.5: A script to fix Time Machine after hardware repairs

Thank you so much for the script. After I was getting lost with another hint, I finally adopted yours and everything is running just fine. Backing up now. Let's see how long it will take.

Just one little further hint for the unexperienced (like me):

Having tried to backup BEFORE reading this thread, I had a second folder in my Backups.backupdb folder. Since I wasn't just able to trash this folder, I used this procedure in the terminal to disable ACLs temporarily:

1) $ sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/the-name-of-your-backup-disk -d

2) I went to the Finder and trashed the second folder as usual and

3) went back to terminal and enabled ACLs again with

$ sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/the-name-of-your-backup-disk -e

thank you again for the hint and good luck everybody!
