10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: barrysharp on Feb 23, '08 11:48:25AM

In your case there should not be a problem in getting access to your old TM backups performed on your computer withy the older motherboard.

For example, I have a PowerMac G5 and a MacBook Air and both are running 10.5.2 and backup to their own TM backup disks/volumes.

I can connect my MacBook Air's TM backup disk to my G5 and using the Dock's TM icon select to "Browse Other Time Machine disks...". Doing this I can then select the MacBook Air's TM backup disk and browse all of the backups and restore files to my G5 if I so decided.

You can do the same thing as I explained abovDefine a new partition, disk, volume etc for your new backups while leaving the old ones alone. Following what I wrote above now select/navigate to your old TM backup disk and do your restores.
