Intel Mac :: Time Capsule Does Not Back Up, Error-1, Sparse Bundle Not Found

Jun 29, 2012

The backup disk image 'Volumes/Data/John's iMac.sparsebundle' could not be accessed(error-1).

Have tried remounting Time capsule in preferences. Have run Disc utility to verify 'Time Machine Backups'. Sparsebundle is greyed out in Disc Utility.

Time capsule has 1.37Gb free space and is connected via wireless and has a wireless express as a client. Would deleting the last back up be of assistance assuming corruption?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Sparse Bundle Is Occupied When Run TM To Time Capsule?

May 13, 2012

After some issues to get connet to the Time Capsule (which I use both to store media data and backup) the Time Mashine cannot run but return a message that the sparse bundle is already in use. In the Backup folder there is a file 2012-05-12-194014.inProgressĚ. Can I just delete this - and move on?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Error Cannot Write To Sparse Bundle / File In Use

Jun 23, 2012

We're having trouble with a Time Machine backup. Twice in the last three days, the backups failed with the error message that the backup disk image is already in use.I noticed that the partition containing the backup sparse bundle is mounted twice in /Volumes -- /Volumes/X and /Volumes/X-1. The error message refers to /Volumes/X-2.The icon that appears on the desktop has not cleared as if it's still doing a backup.Looking at the sparsebundle directly gives me the "verificationstate" as 1 -- I recall reading that this is supposed to 0. Other values:†

verificationdate == 2012-06-05, and VerificationExtendedSkip == false.Note that the backup drive is attached to another Mac still running Leopard. This is run fine for years over a gigabit network.†

OS X :: Time Machine Sparse Bundle Gone?

Aug 10, 2009

I'm freaking out because my time machine backup failed and I opened up my Time Capsule's data folder and my sparsebundle is gone. It isn't hidden, just completely gone. However, The space used by my sparsebundle is still occupied, and airport utility still lists 60 gb used when there is nothing but my sparsebundle on the drive. I just repaired permissions, nothing changed.

OS X :: How To Reduce The Size Of My Time Machine's Sparse Disk Image Bundle

Sep 20, 2009

I've deleted 6 backups already and am left with three but the size of the file hasn't changed at all. I don't want to delete the whole thing and start over.

The file size now is 330gb which is ridiculous to me that it hasn't changed one bit since i deleted 6 backups.

Hardware :: How Far Back Do Time Capsule Back Ups Go?

Aug 17, 2009

There are a gazillion Time Capsule threads and my question is probably answered in one of them. But I've been skimming them and can't find it. Also couldn't find it in the Apple support docs. So...Does anybody know how far back TC backups go? Does it just hold on to the latest backup or can you go back awhile to recover your files?For example, if a file was corrupted six months ago, will I be able to retrieve the prior uncorrupted version of it - or just the latest TC backup version of it (which would of course also be corrupted)?

OS X :: Error Code 61 On Write / Delete From Sparse Image

Mar 21, 2009

I took the advice of people online and created a sparse image file as a way of password protecting folders on my hard drive. Worked well for a while. These days, when I try to add or delete files from that sparse image, I get error 61 code. Why can't I write/delete from that mounted image anymore?

Hardware :: Time Capsule Won't Back Up

Jun 16, 2009

Yesterday was a most joyous day for me as I got my new mac, a 15.4" MacBook Pro, I also bought a 500GB Time Capsule with it to keep everything backed up. Once I set the Time Capsule I went through all the set up stuff and the wireless network works fine as does the wireless printing. But as you can guess from the title of this thread the Time Capsule wont back up. It gives the following message when I try and get it to back up "Time Machine Error: The backup disk image could not be created."

I've tried reseting the Time Capsule, Tried all the different settings, Looked on the Apple website and it still isn't working.

Hardware :: How To Make Time Capsule Back Up

Dec 27, 2010

Now that the new hard drive is installed, I've connected the MacBook to the Time Capsule, but it's not finding the October back up (or any back up). I'm worried that I have lost all of my pictures and music.

Before I lost the hard drive, I was running snow leopard. Now, I have only installed leopard so far. I left my snow leopard disk at work and have not had a chance to grab it. Maybe the different OS has something to do with this...

Hardware :: Time Capsule Back Up Failure

Dec 11, 2008

Just invested in a TC as my MBP had to go in for repair. Got it all set up and backed up, and was working great.

However, having got the MBP back with new logic board, its stopped working.

Backups just fail, and if I open Time Machine, it doesn't see the back ups made before the MBP went for repair.

The Time Capsule shows up in the finder OK, as being connected, and with the .sparsebundle file visible. It also shows up in Airtport Utility OK.

Hardware :: Time Capsule And Mozy Back Up?

Feb 12, 2010

Im new to the Mac OS having just purchased my Macbook Pro 13 2.53 a few weeks ago. Im learning my way around and trying to figure out how to eventually switch everything over to the laptop. Currently, I use Mozy to back up my PC and all my files. It has worked well over the last few years and saved me a few times after hard drive crashes.

I need a new router so I like the idea of getting a time capsule and adding in an on site back up to my set up. I also want to use it as an archive of old photos and videos so that I dont have to fill up the hard drive on the lap top.

My question is: Can I just have Mozy back up the contents of time capsule thereby backing up time machine back up content and what ever other files I have stored on the time capsule hard drive. This way, if the time capsule hard drive dies, I can get a new one, and restore from Mozy. I understand the danger of backing up a back up. I just want to know if it will work and if anyone is doing this.I know mozy supports networked drives. I asked their customer support if this set up would work and they were evasive.

OS X :: Time Capsule Error After Snow Leopard

Aug 29, 2009

I was able to install Snow Leopard without any problems - but I can't do a Time Machine backup to my Time Capsule. The drive is not recognized and I get a "25299" error which refers to a problem with my keychain. I've gone into Keychain Utility and (several times) have deleted all the Time Capsule entries, but the problem keeps replicating itself. I was able to run backups earlier today and also reset the settings on the Time Capsule, so I'm sure it's not a problem with the drive.

Intel Mac :: Storage For Time Machine Backup Cannot Be Found

Mar 22, 2012

Late last night I accidentally ejected Time Machine from the Devices section of the Finder window. I've now spent half a day trying to get the computer to recognise my external hard drive again as attempting to use Time Machine results in the message "Storage Machine for Time Machine backup can't be found."†I can find my WD desktop 1TB drive with Disk Utility but not in Finder. If I click on the WD Ext HDD 1021 Media in Disk Utility there is the option to Verify in the top menu, but nothing happens when I click on it. All the options verify, and repair are greyed out. I've checked the computer hard drive and done the verify and repair disk and permissions process.

I've turned off the computer, disconnected the external hard drive, turned off time machine, then turned everything back on but still can't get the external hard drive to be recognized.†This is extremely frustrating and I have run out of ideas. I know it all started when I clicked on the eject button for the external hard drive in the devices section of the finder. Such a simple mistake, but I have searched everywhere online and can't find a resolution that I can actually try. I can't verify and repair the WD hard drive if these options aren't available in Disk Utility.

Intel Mac :: Error - "server Can't Be Found"

Jun 22, 2012

This first time problem has persisted since the most recent Apple updates. I have a 24" Mac w/Lion 10.7.4 Whether I use Safari, Camino, Firefox or Opera eventually I get a "server can't be found" message when attempting to open a site ( including Apple, blogs,newspapers, etc). This error isn't consistent. not always the same site won't open ... sometimes I'll get the 'can't be found message', then after opening other sites and returning to the can't open site ... it opens. Also, mail, especially those from businesses, will open but any pics, drawings, etc. aren't there, just a small box with a question mark.  Again, this is erratic problem and doesn’t happen every time I open mail. I visited an Apple Genius and she said it was a network issue, then removed a folder named, "CaptiveNetworkSupport" and 9 files ... including a preference.plist,, NetworkInterfaces.plist, etc. The Genius said the problem was fixed ... but returning home, I reconnected everything and the original problem is still exists.

Intel Mac :: OSX Lion Restore From Time Capsule Backup

Mar 22, 2012

This morning my iMac acted up so I used Onyx to find out what's wrong and it said it needs to repair the disk.  

I then restarted, pressed cmd + R and tried to repair it but it said that I needed to back up files and would have to format the drive.  Ok, good thing I just backed up my computer before the imac acted up, so I formatted the drive sing Disk Utility and then proceeded to reinstall OS X Lion. 

Right now, it is still downloading stuff and have at least 5 hrs to go. 

My question is, what would be the next best course of action to take: 

Restore from latest TM backup? (will this be a good idea since the HD failed and cause the HD to fail again?) As much as possible, I want everything as it was before the crash. Or would it be better to start from scratch and reinstall everything? The only impt thing I want restored are my photos ( only backed up with TM).

Intel Mac :: 2011 Time Capsule & External Hard Drive - Move Library Onto One Of These?

Apr 8, 2012

I'm a first time contributor so please forgive me if I seem a little "wet behind the ears"...I have a 2011 iMac (which replaced my 2006 G5 iSight model) and a 500gb Time Capsule.I have my iTunes Library (which is approximately 150gb) on the Time Capsule but, given the relatively modest 500gb on the capsule there is not enough room to back up my computer.I have been looking at 2tb external firewire hard drives and I am hoping to move my iTunes library onto one of these and then use the capsule to back up my computer with Time Machine (the Mac has an internal 500gb hard drive). I'm hoping this will be a relatively straightforward task! The downside with this is of course, I will not have a back up of my iTunes library...with the hardware that i have does anybody have any advise or better ideas!?

Intel Mac :: Time Machine Won't Back Up?

I know this is a common issue and I've read all the other posts and tried everything, but time machine still won't back up. I need help figuring out if there's anything I can do, or if I need a bigger back up disk. If so, how big? 

I have deleted old backups, excluded unnecessary files, and cleaned out folders. It says 157.46GB available of 159.7GB; but when it backs up it says it requires 188.30GB but only 157.46GB are available.

OS X :: Master Boot Record Not Found / Put It Back?

Jan 30, 2010

Ok here's the situation. I'm trying to fix my brothers laptop at the moment and reinstall Leopard. He installed ubuntu and it seems to have deleted the Master Boot record. I've managed to get Leopard to install but the mouse clicker doesn't work. I've managed to narrow down the problem to the MBR, the master boot record.

In terminal I've typed in sudo fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0

This has come up with the error "master boot record not found". I'm now trying to find a way to put the Master boot record back.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?

OS X :: Stream Music From Time Capsule To Mac Mini / Hookup Mini To Time Capsule Via USB

Jul 19, 2009

I am planning on purchasing a mac mini solely for the purpose of playing music - it will be hooked up to a hi-fi amplifier and speakers. All of the music that will be on the computer will be in lossless format, which is very large. I will need a lot (320+ GB?) of storage.

I'm wondering if I can cut costs by buying an old 80 GB mini and augmenting its hard drive with a time capsule. I was planning on buying a time capsule anyway, so I could save something like $300. My questions are: would I be able to stream music from the time capsule to the mac mini? Would I be able to import music from itunes directly onto the time capsule? If I hook the mini up to the time capsule via USB, can it serve as a hard-drive, even if my internet is down? Is it going to be much more worth my time to buck up and buy a new 320 GB mini?

Software :: Access Denied Error - URL Could Not Be Found

Oct 15, 2010

I am on a ship using a proxy server from our ISP to connect to the internet via a V-SAT satalite dome. We all have individual accounts and the guys using PC's have no problems connecting to the internet. My account also works on a P.C. However whenever i try to connect to the internet I get an Error message 403 "the following URL could not be found" "access denied". However if I disable my proxy settings reconnect to the internet then re-enable my proxy settings I am able to get on line but only for a minute or two then I get the message again. Switching off my proxies then on again always gets me on line but only for a very short period (30 secs to a minute ish).

There has been an occasional time when I have been able to access the internet for longer but only when there has been 3 or 4 people on line and browsing at the same time. I have spoken to my ISP and he thinks I may have been piggy backing onto someone elses account but was unable to offer any other advice and referred my case to someone else and I am still waiting for their response. I am running a mac book pro on snow leopard 10.6.4, using firefox (have the same problem with Safari) with proxy set to "use system settings" and my network preferences set with the given proxy server settings (, port 3128). I have the same problems using WiFi or cable also.

Other info: my IP address stays the same. Although my cable IP is different from my wifi address. IPv6 is set to automatic. I think the problem lies with my mac as my given user account works on PC computers ( which I am using now!). Also there are 3 other guys with mac books who have also had the same problems although they are now at home. I have also tried changing to a guest account with similar problems although I cannot change proxy settings.
