10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: fygoat on Feb 02, '08 07:31:35AM

Yes, I've had the same problem quite a few times. Went through 3 replacement machines of identical configuration, each time Time Machine would initially report 'Backup Failed', saying it couldn't find the backup volume.

Re-selecting the backup drive would enable backups to proceed but Time Machine would create a new, separate backup instead of continuing on from the previous backup data.

10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes

Yep - I ran a few tests on this scenario and you're correct. I was not able to figure out just how to fake TM into continuing on from where it was. It does always make a new FULL backup. :( Bummer.
