I've got an external hard drive ("HDD A") formatted HFS+, which is backed up to a Time Machine drive also formatted HFS+. I'm going to replace HDD A with another external hard drive, formatted APFS - I'm planning to copy the contents of HDD A and transfer it to the APFS drive (using Carbon Copy Cloner).
Is it possible for Time Machine to continue with the HDD A backups on the APFS drive (ie. so that the next backup is incremental, and it's easy to browse backups in Time Machine.app), even though a filesystem change has occured?
It seems like I should use
tmutil associatedisk (but thought I would check, since I don't want cause a problem with my Time Machine backup history).
(In case it's relevant, I'm using macOS Ventura 13.0 (so the
-a option for
tmutil associatedisk isn't available)).
