10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: iynque on May 05, '08 09:35:31AM
After I followed these steps, my TM backup error changed from not enough space on the drive to "Backup volume cannot be found" or some similar wording.

I went into System Preferences > Time Machine and clicked on the "Change Disk..." button. My external hard drive appeared twice in the list. Very odd.

A simple restart fixed the issue. I clicked the "Change Disk..." button again and there was my drive. A backup is running now, and it recognizes my old TM data.

I don't know if this is specific to my hardware or the instructions.

I have
