Applications :: Time Capsule Keeps The Same Available Size - Finding Deleted Files

Jul 15, 2010

I don't have enough space at my Time Capsule, and I noticed that I have backed-up some silly big folders like Downloads. So I assigned them for not to take backup. But time machine already took backup of them and keeps space in Time Capsule.

Applications :: Deleted Backup Files From Time Machine?

Mar 2, 2010

(Using Snow Leopard 10.6.2). Over the last 12 months or so, I've managed to fill up the "Backups.backupdb" file on the external HD to about 400GB. I'm pretty confident that I have all these files safely backed-up (in other other files) on the same external HD. So, I thought I'd have a clear-out and get rid of the contents of this "Backups.backupdb" file on the external HD. I followed the instructions on this page: [URL]

So, I could see (after I did it), that when I entered into Time Machine (with the timeline and universe landscape backdrop) all the files had gone. But when I looked into the "Backups.backupdb" file on the external HD, the files were still there, so I highlighted them all, and placed them into the Trash. I've not emptied the trash yet, but before I do, I just wanted to ask, was is this ok to do, or can it cause problems to just delete the files from the "Backups.backupdb" file on the external HD?

Hardware :: Time Capsule - Reported Disk Size In AirPort Utility

Feb 22, 2010

I bought a new 2TB Time Capsule, and had problems completing the initial backup. I finally sourced the problem to files that were buried deep in a stack of folders, which seemed to make the file name/path too long. Anyway before I realized that I tried to reformat the Time Machine, and this seemed to work ok. However Airport Utility is now reporting the Time Capsule Disk Size as being 1.8TB, rather than 2TB.

I think before I reformatted the disk it showed as being 2TB in this menu, but I cannot be sure. I am worried that I have somehow formatted it wrong and lost some data space? If I go into Disk Utility, it does say there that the Data partition is 2TB, so it seems strange that Airport Utility shows it at 1.8TB. Can someone else who has the 2TB Time Capsule let me know whether in Airport Utility it shows as being 2TB or 1.8TB?

Hardware :: Time Capsule Backup Size Smaller Than Disk File?

Jun 20, 2009

I have been using time capsule for only a few weeks and I have noticed that the file it has created "Elliot Newman's MacBook Pro_001b63936847.sparsebundle" only reads a file size of 95GB, when the disk I am backing up has 148GB used. Does this mean the backup doesn't contain all my files? I have to say it concerns me a little that the backup shows only a single file, is there anyway to see the files that time capsule has backed up? I am updating my MacBook soon with a bigger internal drive and I want to make sure all my files are backed up before I do this.

IMac (Intel) :: Why Is Machine Not Finding Time Capsule

Sep 2, 2014

I have a desktop mac from mid 2011 and also a 2010 mac mini.  I just got a new time capsule and time machine cannot find the new time capsule.  I know the new time capsule is working because I have a third machine from late 2012 that found the new time capsule easily.  Could it be an operating system issue?  I am running 10.9 on the machine that is working, 10.8 on the mid 2011 machine, and 10.7 on the mac mini. 

Imac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

Hardware :: Finding Time Capsule Automatic Periodic Backup Software?

Dec 7, 2009

At the time it seemed very practical to use a Time Capsule to share files between the members of the company (we are just 4) and this way use it as backup and server.

As we use it as the company file server to share file between member, we found out that it would be needed to make backups every now and then (preferably on monthly basis).

I bought another normal external hard drive, plugged it into the time capsule and made the backup.

OS X :: Backing Up Many Files To Time Capsule

Sep 27, 2009

Here's my scenario, every day I change around a couple gigs of space on my MacBook Pro, which is tethered to my ACD in my room normally. Whenever I want to change it, I have to bring it downstairs, plug it in via ethernet and back it up if I want it to take less than six hours. What's the best solution to make it take less time, via a wired connection I guess? My room is directly above the router (on a different floor, though). I doubt drilling through the ceiling is too easy, though. We do have this like 100-foot ethernet cord, though.

I bought a Time Capsule obviously to back up my mac, but I've only got 3GB left on the mac itself, so want to store files on Time Capsule (movies, music etc) then remove them from my Mac to free up space. I asked in the shop and they said it was possible to store files on Time Capsule when they're deleted off the mac, but I was wondering if you could how its possible, and how I would do this?

OS X :: Itunes Library On HD & TC - Time Capsule Media Files

Oct 21, 2010

I've been trying vigorously to connect my itunes library with my Time Capsule Media files.So that I can keep the music I acually listen to on my Macbrook Pro's harddrive but have the rest of my music stored onto my time capsule and listen to when I am at home.What I thought to do was put the music i listen to in the itunes library folder on the harddrive and then change the media location to the TC media file folder.Turns out my idea was wrong.. any others care to elaborate on this issue? I'm pretty much confused with this and i haven't been able to find it on the forums anywhere

Hardware :: How To Use Time Capsule To Move Files To Windows

Nov 16, 2009

I've searched high and low trying to solve this issue. I want to use Time Capsule as an external hard drive that is readable in Windows so I can transfer over files. I know that the Time Capsule must be formatted as FAT32. I don't even care about my Time Machine backups--I'm fine with deleting them all and reformatting so partitioning need not be done.

If you remove a file from your mac, will time machine update it self and also remove it from the external drive? Or does it save and keep everything?

Also if it saves everything is there a way to go back and delete something, for instance some files that you don't need on your desktop.

Hardware :: ITunes Won't Auto Locate Files On Time Capsule?

Mar 22, 2010

so I have a relatively new Macbook Pro 15" and an equally-new Time Capsule. I put all of my 4,500 songs onto the Time Capsule because I only listen to music and home and also because I wanted to save space on my hard drive. While this set up has worked up until now, I am beginning to experience some problems. Right now iTunes says that it cannot locate the file for any of my songs unless I manually show it where those files are on my Time Capsule. I am not worries about losing the files because they appear to be unaltered, however I wanted to know if there was a way to have iTunes automatically search through my music folder and fix the problem. I know there is a way to download all the music from my hard drive to my computer and then back to the hard drive to fix the problem, but I would really like to avoid having to dump all those files onto my pristine hard drive.

IMac (Intel) :: Backing Up All But System Files To Time Capsule

Dec 3, 2014

I have a 2013 iMac on OS 10.9.5 with no problems.  I will be receiving a new iMac w Retina Display on Yosemite, which I'll be backing up with a new, unused TC.

I want to copy and transfer files from older iMac to the new one using the TC, but right now I don't want upgrade to Yosemite on the older iMac. 

Can I manually select files from the older iMac to copy to the TC, and what files must I leave out so that there aren't any problems that transferring files from an older OS to a newer one won't arise?

iMac with Retina 5K display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1), 3TB TC
