    FYI, if any of you have run into issues with your Time Capsules since the latest Sierra update, specifically: Unable to perform a time machine backup Unable to access the Time Capsule through Airport Utility There is a somewhat easy fix: 1. Open AirPort Utility 2. Under File, select...

    My favorite usb memory stick stopped working on me. I'm pretty sure that it was backed up on Time Machine as I would leave it plugged into my Macbook when Time Machine was running. Without using my usb stick, how do I access its files that would have been backed up on Time Machine?
  3. Anything Mac
    So, via my wife's work discount, I can get the 3TB version for $367. Apple has a refurb one for $339. Does anyone know if the current retail model is the same as the refurb version? I think it is - it's the tall white one, but not sure if there have been any minor hardware revisions. In any...

    So, I just bought friends of mine an external after theirs went south. They had a time capsule who's HD was messy so I don't think they've been backing up for a min. I bought them a 2TB ext which should be plenty fine as they both have Airs. My q? is the following: Would there be a preferred...

    I come here to escape the morass of FAQs both Apple and Google offer. Yesterday I downloaded the new McAfee Security service from Bell Sympatico - which had not been available for Win8 PCs or ever for the Mac - and then found that my Time Capsule cannot be accessed. After uninstalling McAfee, I...

    Back Up Question w/ Time Machine So a whilst back, I bought a new ext for my main backup. and plugged it etc... everything was fine. some days later, the back up refused to work and somehow I was able to create a new back up folder (how this took place I still don't recall). So now I have 2...
  8. Anything Mac
    Hi everybody Since about 3 years I make backups from 1 and recently 2 iMacs to a Time Capsule. Last year the operation was suddenly impossible. So I removed the "sparsebundle" file on it and it worked again, for a time. From time to time I had to unplug the T.C. and everything was fine. I...

    How will that work? I have my lap hooked to an ext at present, and moved my music library on to the ext as it got out of hand (I didn't get rid of my original 80G HD from the BlackBook until a few months ago) But now, I'm considering bringing the music back on to my lap via a 2 HD set up - 1...
  10. Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod Help & Troubleshooting
    So, I get back from being on the road and put my MBP back on the desk, plug my ext and hit BACK UP NOW. Come back a few mins later to find an ! in my time machine status menu. Look around and see nothing out of the ordinary. Try again, and again. Nothing. So I snoop around. Read this...
  11. Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod Help & Troubleshooting
    I am amazed at the ease in repairing--another story--my MacBook when I decided to take the opportunity to slim the junk files bogging my drive previously (a count of over 700 plist files attest to the fact. iTunes restored beautifully, purchased music and apps present my only problem was the...
  12. Anything Mac
    Hi All, Yes this is yet another NAS thread. I've read a few of them over the past month, new/old and looked at a few solutions: 1. Time Capsule - I've owned a 1TB 1st gen & sold it as I didn't believe MAC filtering was actually working. 2. DLink DNS-323 - Looks like a good solution for...
  13. Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod Help & Troubleshooting
    Hello everyone. This is my first post and I am a very proud Canadian as well as a relatively new mac user (completely converted and loving it for over 1.5 years now). My question is about Time Machine. I produce marketing and sales videos for a living and have a helper that uses a PC (crazy I...
