upgrading TM drive?

OK, I should have checked apple.com first:


"If you do run out of space, the best thing to do is to attach a new backup disk. After you attach the new disk, open Time Machine preferences and click Change Disk to choose it as your Time Machine backup disk."

upgrading TM drive?

Except, the link you posted to Apple's site doesn't answer your question, which is whether you can copy your existing TM backup to the new drive, and then continue backing up to the copy as if nothing had changed. That would be great.
