I have an external HD that I've been using as a time machine for my MBP. Here's what I want to do:
- attach the drive to my desktop machine
- configure time machine on my MBP to use the drive as a time machine through the network
- retain my existing backups...
So I want time machine to continue using the same backups it always did when the drive was connected locally. I do not want to start from scratch.
I know how to set time machine to use a network drive rather than a locally attached drive, but it doesn't recognize the existing backups (it wants to start over). I'm not afraid of the terminal... how can I get this working?
I got a large drive to use during the conversion, but the link below didn't help because there was no hex id to be found on my machine in the second step :/
