OS X Mountain Lion :: Time Machine - Restore File To Different Computer

Aug 27, 2014

How to restore a file from the Time Share volume of one mac to a different mac. 

I have 2 machines: macbook pro & mac air both both running latest mountian lion.  Each keeps its own time share volume on a network server.  The two have some sync'd shares, but in general, they are not fully sync'd. 

the macbook pro is in the shop for repair for a few days and I'd like to fetch some of it's files from its time machine backup onto the macair.  I'm a little reluctant to simply fire up Time Machine on the mac air and respecify it's storage volume to be the macbook pro's volume.  I'm concerned about internal configuration changes Time Machine might make to the mac air, including making changes that might cause it to have to do a full (not differential) back up when I reconfigure the mac air's Time Machine to use it's own backup volume after I'm done getting files from the macbook pro backup volume. 

In addition to simply getting access to some of the files of the mac in the shop, I want to get the mac calendar from that machine and use it on the mac air.  I understand that this may be somewhat trickier.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Time Machine Wants To Do Full Backup Of File Excluded Just Once

Aug 27, 2014

I excluded for one TM backup a sparse bundle disk image that I have been backing up regularly. I then immediately removed the sparse bundle disk image from the TM exclusions list, and now TM wants to back up the entire sparse bundle disk image, which contains an iPhoto Library (80GB). It seems that TM does not "see" the previous disk image backups.

Why Does Mac OX 10.6.8 Keep Making Copies Of File Anytime Download / Copy / Move File

Feb 25, 2012

Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Is File "image Backup" Empty In Time Machine

Mar 24, 2012

I've notice that when time machine does a backup to an external drive it creates a file "image backup" I would like to know why is this file empty? I've check through all my backups and everytime this file appears to be empty.

Also when Time Machine does a backup of your computer, then all the photos from photobooth should appear in the photobooth library file right?

I've just hooked up my 2 Tb time capsule, which is supposed to be the destination for time machine and also have a share folder to share music on the network. Originally I wanted to partition the drive, but since that appears to be such a headache I'll probably make do with one partition.

OS X :: Recover Time Machine File On Another Computer?

Nov 12, 2009

My MacBook's hard drive died last night, but luckily I have a backup from earlier that day on my Time Machine enabled external HD. My friend has a MacBook, and I have a paper due for a class in about a week, so I was wondering if I could hook my HD to her computer and recover just the word document. I would have tried this by now if the guy at the store who's replacing my hard drive had not told me to be extremely careful when trying this or else it won't restore when I get my computer back.

OS X :: Time Machine Backup File Unable To Open

Sep 11, 2010

I recently used time machine for the first time in a long time. I use my external HD USB for the backup. After the back up was complete, I unplugged the USB cable. I got an error that I needed to put the HD away first (I wasn't thinking). And I didn't pay attention to the error either.

I thought the data was gone, when I didnt see the data in the back up file. I do see the back up file with that date on it. In the file is the .InProgress file. In that file, on right clicking, I see the contents of one folder. This folder has a very long name of numbers and letters. It shows no contents in the finder. THough I know the files must be here. The HD has capacity of 100 Gig. There is only about 20 gigs showing on it. Though there is only 20 gigs available. So, my back up data is there on the HD, and I assume it's in this "empty" file.

* How do I extract the saved files ?
