I had some hard drive problems a little while ago, so installed a new drive system, and restored data from my Time Machine Backup. However, the mount point is very different from the one originally backed up.
Right now I have a 6 TB backup drive, with 1.6 TB free. I have 4 TB's to backup to it, most of which is already on the backup drive, just mapped to a different folder/volume.
I'm quite comfortable using the shell or whatever, I'm just getting permission problems or 'operation not permitted' when trying to move the folders to an existing tree, or to even create a symlink.
Hopefully I don't need to dump my old backup data in order to continue backing up.
Is there a way I restructure the backup folders on the Time Machine drive, so I don't lose my backups from before this restore point?
