I have a RAID I've used for years as my Time Machine backup. Recently the volume I have my backups on got corrupted and unusable. I also have a TM backup on a NAS with about half a year of backups already on it.

If I copy the folders from the failing drive onto the NAS, will:

  • TM detect them and allow backups from them?
  • TM clean up the drive by adding hard links?
  • it get indexed properly so it can be used?
