I am migrating from a MacBook Pro (early 2009 - OSX 10.6.8) to a new MacBook Pro (OSX 10.7.2). I have been backing up to an external drive using TimeMachine.
I want to migrate the back up to my new laptop but jumped the gun and can't get TimeMachine to ask for a backup location (see Dan Moren's article – Migrate Time Machine backup to new Mac in Lion)
- Is there a way to force Time Machine to ask for a backup location so I can point it to the old existing files, or
- Can I blow away the Time Machine settings and start over with it without having to also wipe my drive and start over with a new system install?
