I have a Time Machine sparsebundle from an old Mac that I'd like to get access to, but am having trouble repairing it to a point where I can mount the image.

It was created to back up a machine running Mavericks and Yosemite onto a NAS and worked successfully. It's encrypted and I have the password.

I've tried the following and any help/guidance as to where to go next would be very much appreciated.

MBP-0110:~ root# chflags -R nouchg /Volumes/CaptureOne\ backup/MacBookPro.sparsebundle
MBP-0110:~ root# hdiutil attach -nomount -readwrite -noverify -noautofsck /Volumes/CaptureOne\ backup/MacBookPro.sparsebundle

/dev/disk3s2            Apple_HFS
