    New hard disc for Time Machine iMac
    Hi,
    My external hard disc that I used for Time Machine crashed and I bought a new one to replace it. Now I would like TM to create a new full back-up instead of an incremental like he did today. I searched but could not find the option the gzt a new full back-up. Can someone please let me know how I can get that new full back-up?
    thanks
    Azorius.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    If you replaced the hard drive with another one, there's no way it didn't do a full back-up. It has to have something to add the incremental TO.

    You might want to check your "Volumes" folder (under the Go menu, Go to Folder, type in /Volumes). If there is ANYTHING in there besides an alias to the currently-mounted hard drives, that could be where the incremental went.

    *DON'T* mess with anything in there, just let us know if there was anything in there besides aliases to the currently-mounted hard drives.
