    It has worked perfectly for years, but after installing ML Ive had trouble. I was able to do a repair with Drive Genius once, but now DG cant find it either.
    I keep getting this message:
    The backup disk image “/Volumes/Derek Coke-Kerr's Time Caps/Derek Coke-Kerr’s Computer.sparsebundle” is already in use.
    and I can't do anything to find Time Capsule through preferences. Any help would be very welcome.

    On the internet!
    I keep getting the same message, i'm gonna try some stuff today and ill let you know if it works or not. :)


    I solved the problem by turning off my computer, unplugging it from the wall. Then went over to the time capsule and yanked the power on it, let it be for a couple of seconds and plugged it back in again. Waited until the light turned green, then i started my iMac. It found the disk straight away and now it's backing up. :)
