Hardware :: PC Cannot Connect To Time Capsule Driver To Perform Backup

Aug 25, 2009

My Time Capsule and PC (Windows XP) communicate well wirelessly. I am able to access the internet and use AirPort Utility to change settings on the Time Capsule if needed.

However, I have NOT been able to perform a backup on my PC yet. I am not able to access the Driver and don't really know what to do to fix it.

Under the "Network Drivers" section, the PC says that it is a "Disconnected Network Drive", and when I try to open it up, it says "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

Reading other threads, I've already checked and verified that the PC and the T.Capsule are using the same Workgroup name. I am not sure that I have Bonjour loaded on my PC. Is it necessary?

Hardware :: Can Time Machine Backup External Drive Attached To Time Capsule?

Mar 11, 2009

I have an external 500gb drive plugged into my brand new Time Capsule. The 500gb drive basically stores my entire library of music and my iTunes points to this external drive.

Is it possible to have time machine backup all information on the 500gb drive to the time capsule, so encase the external drive takes a dump, I don't loose my entire music library? Maybe time machine is already doing this, I am not sure.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Time Machine Can't Complete Backup To Time Capsule

Jun 19, 2014

MacBook Pro mid-2012, 8GB RAM, 750GB hard drive, Mac OS X 10.8.5

One Time Capsule at home

One Time Capsule in vacation home 

MBP backs up everything on internal hard drive to Time Capsule at home, where we live during summer and spring. When moving to vacation home in fall and winter, MBP backs up everything to Time Capsule in vacation home. 

During the 6 months at each residence, the backups work great to the Time Capsule at that particular house. However, after some time (maybe a week?), Time Machine displays an error in Notification Center: "Time Machine can't complete backup to Home Time Capsule" (when in vacation home) or "Time Machine can't complete backup to Vacation Time Capsule" (when at home). 

It's obvious that this occurs because Time Machine was set to back up to 2 Time Capsules and expects both of them to be reachable. Is there a way to suppress these Time Machine errors for the time that we're away from one of the Time Capsules?

Hardware :: Connect To Time Capsule While Connecting To Wifi Network At Same Time?

Sep 22, 2009

I recently purchased a Time Capsule to use as a wireless hard drive. I connect to the internet both through wifi and ethernet to a educational network that does not allow extra routers, etc, to be added to the network, therefore I can not use the time capsule for this wifi.

I therefore want to connect to my early 2009 MBP17unibody to both the academic internet network for http/pop3/ftp/etc while simultaneously connecting to external hard drive to store data/itunes-library/etc.

I expect this has been asked before but I can't find any threads where it has. If anyone knows it would be highly helpful. I'd prefer to connect to both wirelessly but I could potentially put up with connecting to either or both with ethernet.

Applications :: Time Machine Backup To Time Capsule?

Apr 23, 2010

I started my backup over 24 hours ago and after it completed its 130GB backup, it has now continued backing up endlessly incrementing the xxGB of xxGB without end. I stopped the backup and it then began at 140.9MB to backup. Once it reached 149.9MB it continued; displaying 149.9 MB of 149.9 MB. It is currently at 502.4 MB of 502.4 MB. I am using Snow Leopard. Has anyone seen this happen before? Or know how to resolve?

Hardware :: How To Backup Time Capsule Itself

May 4, 2008

How would I actually go about go backing up the Time Capsule itself, to an external drive?

I usually have an "emergency" drive that I place in a secure location, in case I lose my principal backup drive. Now that I use a Time Capsule as my main backup drive, I'm not sure how to go about this.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Won't Backup?

Aug 26, 2009

I previously used my TC as my main router, connected via ethernet to my iMac and also to an AEBS to give me dual zone wifi (it's a 1st gen. TC without the built-in dual zone). I recently moved and now have a home ethernet network, so I reconfigured things slightly. The AEBS is now the router, connected to a 16-port switch that feeds all the outlets around the house. The TC is connected to this, in bridge mode to expand the network, and is still connected to the iMac directly via ethernet.

Well, the bridge networking works fine, as I have internet access on the iMac and I can stream iTunes content from there to either of my Apple TVs over my ethernet network. However, Time Machine backups now "fail", and I have no idea why or what to do about it. This is especially strange as the TC and iMac are connected directly to each other, exactly as they were before I reconfigured the set-up.

OS X :: Does Time Capsule Backup Offsite

Aug 10, 2010

I have a back up external HD and a backup of my back up external, but I want one more back up just in case my house burns down or is broken into.

I know Time Capsule is wireless, but does it back up off site like how Carbonite or Mozy do? Those products don't seem to be all they are cracked up to be, and would rather give Apple my business if I can.

Is Time Capsule what I'm looking for? Does it back up to a Cloud area in cyber space that I can access anywhere ala dropbox, or is it's thing that it only transfers back up data wireless but it's still in your house.

OS X :: Time Capsule Won't Allow Two Computers To Connect?

Feb 3, 2009

I have a time capsule and a MacBook Air for the last number of months. Both had been working perfectly and even when my neighbour came over with his MacBook, we could quite easily network between the two computers and connect the two to the internet via the time capsule... Furthermore my MacBook air backed up regularly to the time capsule using time machine without a problem.

Problem. I got a new iMac and uploaded an imprint of my MacBook account and data onto it from the time capsule. I now cannot connect the two computers to the time capsule simultaneously, cannot network between them or cannot have both connected to the internet at the same time.. Furthermore, neither will back up to the time capsule using time machine. Very frustrating, because I know that it is something very simple causing this, but I am new enough to Mac and cannot resolve.

Hardware :: 2TB Time Capsule Backup Appliance

Jul 30, 2009

Apple doubled the capacity on its Time Capsule router with integrated hard drive Thursday, giving users a full 2 terabytes of storage in the top-of-the-line model. The new model is available for $499 from Apple. Rumors of a 2TB Time Capsule first broke this April, when a picture of a box with the expanded capacity first appeared at ClubMac. At $499, the 2TB model has replaced the price point of the 1TB model. The lower-end Time Capsule is now available for $299.

Earlier this year, the company introduced new AirPort Extremes and Time Capsules with dual-band support. The new models allow simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band networking. With dual-band, base stations can simultaneously support iPhones and other 802.11b/g devices operating at 2.4 GHz, while also broadcasting 802.11n wide signals in the 5GHz band to maximize throughput for notebooks and devices such as Apple TV. Time Capsule drives were also made accessible over the Internet for MobileMe subscribers.

Additionally, the new Guest Network feature allows users to set up a secondary network for friends and visitors with Internet-only access without handing out a WiFi password. Time Capsule pairs the existing AirPort Extreme with a hard drive to serve as a backup appliance for Leopard machines running Time Machine, in addition to acting as a simple file and print server. It is offered for both Mac and Windows users, although Windows PCs (or Macs not running Leopard) won't have Time Machine and therefore will access it only as a regular file and print server.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Cannot Complete Backup Using TM

Oct 2, 2010

My 1st Gen Time Capsule cannot complete a backup using Time Machine. TM says that the disk is not available, yet, it is mounted and I did a Disk Verify on it and it was "OK." Is this a sign of issues with the TC, itself? There hasn't been a backup done in 2 weeks AND internet speeds have been up and down during that time as well. I thought it might be my old "modem" or my ISP, but now I am thinking it might be the TC. If it dies, I think I might just get an AE and get a USB HDD for TM backups in addition to my weekly clones. It is too bad that Apple doesn't support TM backups on the AE and a USB HDD.

MacBook Air :: Restoring Backup From Time Capsule

Jan 5, 2011

I just bought the new MBA and had a MacBook Pro. I completed 1 last backup from the MBP via Time Capsule. I used Migration Assistant on the MBA and followed the instructions.

Unfortunately, I did it wirelessly so it took about 17 hours. Applications transferred such as Office 2011 for Mac, VMWare Fusion, Handbrake, etc. No photos or iTunes music transferred, unless I can't find them somewhere.

Hardware :: Using Time Capsule To Backup IMac

May 5, 2010

I'm buying a iMac i7 with 2tb HD and am thinking to go with a Time Capsule for backup. Can I just run the backup periodically, keeping it turned off most of the time? I see that the product lasts about 18 months, so I should get much more use if that 18 months were due to continuous running, and I only turn it on when needed. I'm sure it will be a few years before I ever get close to using 2 TB if ever, in that sense, would it be better to buy a 1 TB Time Capsule over a 2TB simply because of the longevity issues & my backup requirements, not to mention the expense?
