Apple Time Machine Gotcha [FIXED]...

Well... for whatever reason, my Mac thought that it's system disk was a Time Machine backup disk. That's because there was a folder called


in the system drive's root directory (i.e., click on your system icon in Finder, then click on the system hard drive and look for "backups/backupdb" in that folder).

I found the solution at this site -- nice to see I wasn't the only one with this kind of problem -- and deleted backups/backupdb. Now my install of Snow Leopard is working just fine.

So how come my system disk thought it was a Time Machine disk? Who knows... just one of those TechBlech mysteries.
