10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: barrysharp on Mar 21, '08 11:03:39AM

It should be noted that when TM backs up to a net HDD such as the Time Capsule a sparse bundled disk image is created on the TC's HDD. The name of this image contains the Computer Name and the computer's MAC as well as the hidden file '.MAC'. For example on my Time Capsule I'm backing up three Macs and the sparse bundled disk image file names are (N.B. I've replaced the actual MAC with a bogus value such as "MBA's MAC").

Barry's PowerMac G5 (2)_PMG5's MAC2.sparsebundle
Gillian Sharp's MacBook (4)_MB's MAC.sparsebundle
