Just got a new logic board, and they wiped the hard drive.  My Time Machine disk mounts, and I can see the files.  However, migration assistant doesn't list it as a source.  (Yes it's formatted Mac OS Extended [Journaled]) 


Time Machine recognizes it and wants to use it as a new backup disk, but it doesn't want to show me anything from the old back up. I didn't do a new backup of the "new" computer.  I don't back up applications just users.
