10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: wallybear on Jan 17, '13 10:25:06AM

You can use the command 'xxd' to see the ASCII equivalent of the UUID stored with backup:

xattr -p com.apple.backupd.SnapshotVolumeUUID my_partition | xxd -r -p ; echo

It will return the UUID like this:

ECD4B7A4-5B19-3806-A22A-F2C302567828


You can get the UUID of the real partition in the same format with this command:

diskutil info /Volumes/my_partition | grep UUID | sed "s/[^:]*.[ ]*//"
