Recover files from Apple Time Machine backup on linux.

| December 8, 2009 | Reply

I was playing with a hackintosh for a month or so, and one of the neatest features it has is Time Machine backups. When I got sick of dicking around with MacOS, I threw linux back on my box. Then I mounted up the Time Machine backup drive and… hrmf.

It is less than easy to navigate.

If you’ve done this and you need to pull off your mp3s or something, you can just use the find command to search the full disk and copy files off of it.

find . -name *.mp3 -print0 |xargs -0 -i cp {} /datastore/tmp/
