Transfer a Time Machine volume to a larger disk
Authored by: tempel on Dec 18, '10 04:32:02AM

Yeah, it would help if you could describe which component were involved, exactly.

I do not own a Time Capsule, but I am pretty sure that "Restore" in Disk Utility only works towards directly, non-networked, disks, as it needs access to their partition table. Therefore, TC can't ever be the destination of a Restore, or can it?

OTOH, taking any sparse disk img file as the source should work when restoring to a local disk/partition. Only that this requires the "Scan Image for Restore..." operation in DU first.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

IIRC, I did it to a firewire volume directly attached to the computer, Time Capsule - yeah yeah, drink the cool aid.
