10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: tnmacguy on Apr 05, '08 07:48:06PM

Well, to continue the saga - after many hours, TM backed up my new machine to the original archive(s) which had been created by/for/with the original laptop.

HOWEVER, it still said it needed to backup over 100 gigs of data. Not everything on the machine, but an awful lot. So, it deleted the older data to make enough room for the new backup. Which is happening as I'm writing this.

I guess it's good that I got them all "together", however, I'm a little perplexed as to why it thought it needed to backup so much data that should've already been there. (Remember, this drive was created by cloning the original laptop drive with Carbon Copy Cloner.)
