Time Machine, Hot Damn

Yesterday my drive on my desktop died.


I pulled a spare USB drive off the shelf and restarted the computer.

My home account lives on an external drive.

I then went into a guest account.

I then renamed the external drive to be the same name as my original, now hosed drive.

Then I opened up the Time Machine application.

I then copied my home directory back to the location it should be on the external drive.

Hot damn, it worked!

I've bought into Tape, exabyte, TK-45, Jazz, Zip, etc... all of these technologies have failed me.

Most excellent :)
