OS X 10.7.3 Supplemental Update

Apple has released a supplemental update to Mac OS X 10.7.3 to address a potential issue with restoring from Time Machine backups.

The update can be found from Software Update via the  Apple menu or downloaded directly from Apple. Installing the update does not require a reboot.

Despite being a minor update, it is good maintenance practice to keep Mac OS X software up to date and it’s recommended to download for all OS X Lion users who rely on Time Machine for backing up their Macs.

    Seems to be two separate updates. 10.7.3 (11D50) &
    10.7.3 (11D50b). Both crashed my volume control in the menu bar. Must reboot at start-up to get it back.

    The update takes about 8 seconds to do (literally) so you don’t have any reason not to do it.

    Thanks for this! I had issues booting my 27″ with a USB disk for TM plugged in.

    Too bad they still haven’t fixed Launchpad bugs

    Pretty sure this fixes a permissions issue if you restored from 10.7.3
