Transfer a Time Machine volume to a larger disk
Authored by: wallybear on Dec 20, '10 06:29:44AM

It's way faster than copying the .backupd folder because choosing "Erase destination" will start a block copy, faster than a file-by-file copy.
And the volume resizing is done automatically by Disk Utility, so this is a one-step process.
But if you need to keep the data already present on the new TM volume DO NOT enable the "Erase destination" option, and TM data will be merged (or use the .backupd folder copy method).
