The extra Google stuff is not mounted (and Get Info knows only that their extension is .m): Laszlo-Sandors-MacBook-Pro:Volumes laszlosandor$ mount /dev/disk1 on / (hfs, local, journaled) devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse) map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse) map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse) localhost:/p3gHt-AQlUd8simYiL6EqQ on /Volumes/MobileBackups (mtmfs, nosuid, read-only, nobrowse)

The extension is .m, apparently. I see no dmg mounted in my sidebar, I usually remove them.

This is exactly what was supposed to work but did not, thus the original question. But thanks!

This basically worked, things look great – apart from the fact that both of my Recover HDs are now gone. How big a problem is that? Why did that happen? Shall I fix this somehow? How? Thanks again!

This is a great answer. I am a bit hesitant to try it (or to buy a large external HDD and spend a day backing up just to try this — my online backup is on Amazon AWS with Arq, but not the entire disk). But I will see what I can do and accept your answer, or maybe even sooner if others say it solved the same problem for them. Thanks!
