My time machine device is a Drobo FS (Network Backup) so I have ~5 different Macs backed up to it.


I had a Mac Mini (10.8) that was backed up to it. I have a new Mac Mini and want ot restore all of it's settings, accounts, files, etc. to the new Mac Mini.


-If I put my new Mac Mini into recovery mode at startup and attempt to restore from Time Machine no backups are found (Simple, this machine has never had a backup, only other machines I own)


How can I accomplish this?
