Ran into problem today. I upgraded my HDD to an SSD drive in my MacBook Pro. I installed Mountain Lion and then attempted to restore from time machine backup. The MBLD states there are no backups available. I even tried Migration Assistant and after I choose the time machine it asks for my user name and password, I choose guest (I even tried my admin name and another user I created). Most of the time it just hangs like it cannot find anything or sometimes I get a message along the lines of the backup cannot be accessed, it is in use by another machine. If I place my original drive back, I can open the time machine backups and see them. I can also browse to the MBLD IP in Safari and sign in. I can check the backup link and see the backup exists. ANyone experience this problem and have a work around to restore from Time Machine?
The way I was able to restore was by placing my original HDD in a USB enclosure and run migration assistant. I need to be able to restore from MBLD incase my machine ever crashes. This really concerns me. Thanks
P.S. I have the latest firmware for MBLD but I notice the My Book Live had a new update and it fixes Time Machine issues. Why doesn’t the MBLD have an update, aren’t they the same except mine runs 2 HDDs rather than just one.
