NetGear ReadyNAS Time Machine Backup

It seems you cannot mount your Time Machine backup on a ReadyNAS device using normal credentials. Time Machine is segmented off with a special user. Which means I needed to restore my computer using Migration Assistant. It took FOREVER over wifi. However, I seem to be missing my Aperture Libraries. What’s the solution? Assuming it was backed up, I need to find the sparsebundle. It took a lot of searching, but I found it, and will share my brilliance with you in case you ever need to find it, too.

/data/.timemachine

To access: SSH in as root. Then copy the files to a SMB or AFP accessible directory.

cd /data/.timemachine
cp -R * /home/<yourusername>
