Checking Very Large Time Machine Volumes
Authored by: llee on Sep 08, '11 09:41:36AM

I think the problems that people are having are related to spaces in the volume name for the disks they want to check. I tried various ways of quoting the target volume's name to escape the spaces when passing it to an executable made from your script, and i couldn't find one that worked. i finally had to just take the spaces out of the volume name. That's a little undesirable for dealing with a Time Machine backup, because the spaces are put there by default when a Time Machine backup volume is configured, i think. So how can I escape the spaces in my big volume's name so that your script can work? Thanks.

Enclosing the first and third occurence of $VOLUME in " " (double quotes) should do the trick

Thanks. Because I could only find 2 occurrences of "$VOLUME" in the script as submitted, I'd have to say I'm somewhat confused. Would you please elaborate? Thanks again.

The first export line needs to be:

export VOLUME="/Volumes/$1"
