Mac Mini :: Using Time Capsule Restore On System?

Oct 29, 2009

i did a last minute backup before i sold my late 07 Mini last weak and I was a little apprehensive abouthow well the restore would work on the new 2.53 mini.

Well I can now say I am very impressed, i turned on the new Mini and it asked if i wanted to restore and gave me a few options. i chose the TC and it was off and running, it took about 2hrs. when it finished it was like i was still using the old Mini, a perfect image clone. all my email, pictures, docs, etc. were there just like i left them.

so for those who have never done a restore you have nothing to worry about (as long as your TC doesn't crap out first LOL)

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?

OS X :: Need To Do Partial Restore From Time Capsule

Aug 25, 2009

I use a hotmail account for personal email. A few days ago Microsoft sent out an update that gave much better integration with Entourage, and I set up the required POP account and all was well. However, thinking I didn't need the previous account any longer I deleted it, and with it, all of my personal saved folders. I have a Time Capsule backup that dates prior to the change. How I might recover just the filed emails that were on my MacBook?

MacBook Pro :: Restore Won't Work From Time Capsule

May 6, 2012

My Macbook came up with an error, saying the HD needed repairing - I had no problems, and wish I hadn't listened to it! 

After trying to repair, it came up with errors, then wouldn't reboot. I had no problem previous to this point. The only option seemed to be to restore from Time Capsule. 

Time capsule restored overnight, but then just went to the spinning wheel and doesn't look like it has completed the process. The last time I looked it said 35 mins to complete the restore, but now there is a grey screen and a spinning wheel.

Mac Mini :: Using Mac Mini As Time Capsule To Backup Data?

Sep 23, 2009

Except for the wireless routing capabilities, is it possible to use a mac mini as a Time Capsule to backup data from my other macbooks wirelessly?

All the macs will be hooked to the same wireless network FYI.Do I need any specific software to do that? Obviously I will be adding an external hard drive to the mac mini to support more storage space.

OS X :: Full Restore With Time Capsule Stuck On Calculating...?

Dec 21, 2008

So I had to wipe and reinstall Mac OSX.5 (or at least the Apple store genius did). I backed it up just before I took it, and now I am trying to restore completely from the login selection (restore from a time machine backup).

It recognizes my time capsule, and my time machine drive, and it goes to the window where it asks you to choose what to transfer: "User name, network and preferences, applications folder, and finally my files and folders" At first it said "calculating..." for all of them, but all of them except the applications folder finished. It has been over 3 hours and the applications folder is STILL "Calculating" and will NOT let me select transfer.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Performance After Time Capsule Restore?

Feb 17, 2012

I had a Macbook Air 11 latest version which I just sold. Now I have a Mac Pro 13 with a normal 750GB Disk. I did a complete restore of the last Time Capsule back up from the Air to the Pro. After this was completed I installed Lion latest release over the restored installation. Now everything is running but I still have the impression, that the pro is much slower than the Air - I guess one thing is the difference of performance between SSD and normal disks. But still the Pro has much more CPU power, right? 

is there any chance, that through the restore procedure I did, the Pro hardware could have been corrupted as the backup did not match the target machine (Air to Pro)? Is there any way to check of the hardware is working as designed? I have been reading in the communities about the AHT tool, but I can not locate it on Lion, the "D" key has no effect and I have no Leopard Disks containing AHT...

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).

ICloud :: Will A Restore From Time Capsule Wipe IMac

Apr 24, 2012

My iMac was stolen by burglars on Friday. Sunday evening, when I found out, I ordered a remote wipe (from my Air) on the stolen iMac.  Apparently, it hasn't yet come online, though, so the wipe hasn't happened. Today I went a bought a new iMac, and right now I am restoring my (old/stolen) iMac onto my new iMac to a Time Capsule that the thieves didn't find. Suddenly, I got very worried: When it finishes restoring, and says "hi" to the internet,  - will it appear to be the stolen iMac and be wiped? 

In other words: how does iCloud identify the stolen computer - by the machine, or by it's content?(pretty worried right now, since I don't remember the six digit code that will need to be entered IF it is wiped; I made it up when I was completely frantic from the shock of walking into a home that was broken in to.)

OS X :: Private Folder In Root Directory After Time Capsule Restore

Jan 30, 2010

I have a strange "/private" folder in my root directory (Macintosh HD) after a Time Capsule restore today. The folder is ~5GB in size, and appears to have been created during the restore process. The files in the folder have strange-appearing "system" file type names. Can I safely delete this folder? Not sure why its there, but given its size, I'd prefer to delete it.

OS X :: Restore Time Capsule Backup On Clean Snow Leopard Reinstall

Oct 16, 2010

I've got a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard installed, but it has been going sort of sluggish lately so I've decided to do a clean reinstall of Snow Leopard to try and improve things. I've got an up-to-date backup with Time Machine to my Time Capsule. When I do a clean install of Snow Leopard, will I be able to easily restore the files that I want to keep and the applications that I want to put back on my system (with their settings)?

What I want to do is swap the 160GB HDD currently in the MBP into the Mini and then install the 500GB HDD into the MBP and do a backup via TimeMachine with Time Capsule. Would doing that cause any problems when the Mini/MBP backup to the TC?

OS X :: Using Time Capsule To Access Internet For Older System?

Jan 18, 2010

I am the Principal of a school and because of budget cuts - scary piece ahead - also the tech coordinator. I have a few older eMacs, some with airport cards and some without. My question/problem: I want to hook an eMac 10.4.11 directly into the Time Capsule to access the internet (the time capsule is acting as an extension of our wireless network). I have done this before successfully using an airport extreme, however, I am not successful to date in doing this with time capsule. It has been a while since I set up a computer this way. My question is am I missing a trick (using ethernet cord into LAN port), or is it not possible.

But the question is can you stream from it - if not directly at least through a connection from the capsule to the mini?

OS X :: Time Machine Restore To New HD And No System DVD?

Dec 7, 2010

I bought a new HD to upgrade my iMac. I have everything backed up on a USB drive via Time Machine. This should be simple, but now I can't find my Snow Leopard system DVD. I've looked everywhere but no luck. My current HD is starting to give me "no more space" errors, so I'm having to delete some stuff.

Is there anything I can do? Every site I've looked at says to use the system DVD to start up the computer and then restore from Time Machine. Is there some kind of DVD I can create myself? I do have an old OSX DVD from my G5, version 10.7.2. That won't work with Time Machine "automatically", so I don't think it would be helpful. Or maybe it would work, I don't know.

MacBook :: Freeing Up Memory On An Older System With Time Capsule?

Aug 17, 2010

I purchased a 500GB time capsule awhile back in hopes of killing two birds with one stone. I wanted it to:1) serve as my wifi base (which it is doing very nicely)and 2) Allow me to backup all my files on my macbook in order to free up some memory.I guess my question really is, once I've backed up all my content to the time machine (acting as an extra hard drive), is it safe to just delete the content from my macbook that I am ok with not accessing when away from my time capsule? For example, all that music I still want to keep but dont necessarily listen to on a regular basis? I am completely full on my macbook and need extra room. I dont anticipate filling the time capsule anytime soon.

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?

OS X :: Cannot Boot After Time Machine System Restore

Jan 11, 2011

I am upgrading my hard drive in my MacBook Pro and before removing the old hard drive I backed my time machine up to a NAS (Network Hard Drive). I put in the new drive and booted from the Snow Leopard DVD. I formatted it for HFS+ and then selected the option to Restore System from Full Backup. I selected my network hard drive and all seemed to go well. After clicking restart, the machine restarted, gave me the chime, and then displayed the infamous multi-language kernel panic message with some text in the background. Here's a paraphrase of the background text:

"panic (cpu 0 caller) version mis-match between Kernel and CPU PM @/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.9.17/osfmk/i386/pmCPU.c:707

Backtrace CPU 0,... 4 potential args on stack

OS X Mavericks :: Time Machine System Restore?

Jul 1, 2014

I recently did an erase and restore with Time Machine from Mavericks to Leopard (on my MacBook) in order to access stored information on a couple of now-defunct programs. Subsequently I wanted to go back to Mavericks. I did what I did going from Mavericks: held down Command and R while restarting. No deal: I simply ended up with a restart each time. An internet search led me to understand (I think) my error: you need an install disc to move from Leopard to a later program. In fact, I do have a Snow Leopard install disk. But that has been rejected by the computer. That might be because the disk came with my iMac. How did I get Snow Leopard on my MacBook in the first place? An Apple service center installed it when they were servicing my MacBook, which at that time just had Leopard.
