Transfer a Time Machine volume to a larger disk
Authored by: bankshot on Dec 16, '10 10:06:06AM

As the previous comments indicate, a simple copy in Finder does work in Snow Leopard, and is Apple's officially recommended method. I have done so successfully, upgrading my Time Machine disk from a 1.5 TB to a 2 TB.

For those still on Leopard, I found this site and the associated comments to be invaluable:

What, the Finder is aware of the hard links used on a TM backup and copies them without duplicating the items? That's great news, I had no idea.

I'll update my article accordingly.
