Time Machine Cannot Find Backup Volume - Very obviously there

Hey all,

I just got my Mac back from a repair at the Apple Store. I was very excited to have everything back. However, Time Machine cannot back up! The error given is that the backup volume "cannot be found."

I've tried rebooting, remounting the drive and doing checks on it. Everything checks out. I can even write and read to and from the backup volume just fine via Finder. The only issue is that Time Machine can't. What's the problem? How do I fix it?

Attached is a screenshot of my Finder window next to the Time Machine Sys Prefs window.

If by chance your repair included replacing the logic board in your Mac, there is an explanation of the fix here at this MacOSXHints page.

Fixed the broken link for you, it had an extra "http://%22" in there.

Thanks for that! It just figures-- I normally check them all before posting! I went back just now and fixed the original as well.
