So I’ve started using Time Machine with 10.7 again since the new firmware seems to have solved the peformance issues.
I have noticed a new problem though. I find that I need to restore my entire system from the Time machine backup and I can’t.
I’ve done it with 10.6 using the steps provided by Drobo support.
- You create a mount point in the “Volumes” folder
- you manually mount the time machine share using terminal
- Choose “restore from Time Machine backup” and it should find your backups.
This worked in 10.6 but no backups are found with 10.7 in fact it doesn’t even appear to hit the Drobo at all while it is searching.
Can anybody out there running Lion and time machine give this a shot and let me know if it works for them?
