How to restore from Time Machine manually
After I went thru some trouble restoring my iTunes Library, I wanted to document this for all out there that have the same trouble.
The actual restore is that simple I won't describe it here.
After the restore all files are read-only. After trying to set permissions, removing uchg and schg (which didn't do the trick), I finally noticed there are ACLs in place:
WroDos-MacBook-Air:iTunes heiko$ ls -le […] drwxr-x---@ 1910 heiko staff 64940 22 Jul 10:20 iTunes Music 0: group:everyone deny add_file,delete,add_subdirectory,delete_child,writeattr,writeextattr,chown -rw-r--r--@ 1 heiko staff 115407773 9 Aug 19:43 iTunes Music Library.xml -rw-r--r--@ 1 heiko staff 8 9 Aug 19:58 sentinel WroDos-MacBook-Air:iTunes heiko$
The solution is simple:
WroDos-MacBook-Air:iTunes heiko$ chmod -R -a# 0 iTunes\ Music WroDos-MacBook-Air:iTunes heiko$
That removes all ACLs from the folder.
- If you don't know how to do this, better don't try it!
