    Time machine is a big box of poop.

    I just changed the disk-wide permissions on my backup disk and it FRIED the old backup. TM no longer recognizes it!

    It's now attempting to create a new, 900+GB backup on top of the old 900+GB backup.

    The Files are there and they're in tact, they're just not the same permissions as before.

    How do I fix the permissions on a time machine backup so it recognizes it again?

    Just got in touch with an expert.

    For the record: the answer is no. I'm supposed to re-format the drive and 'never do that again'. Apple sucks.
