    Time capsule from windows

    Hi everyone, Not sure if this is the right section, so apologies if I´m wrong. Thing is I have a Time Capsule, the tall slim one, I use as a network drive.

    Asking for recommendations for repurposing Time Capsule

    Good morning! First, I hope you are all healthy and staying well. We've had a 2013 TC in the house since moving in here, and with everyone home ALL the time we figured now was a good time to upgrade. Bumped our internet to 400 mbs and a 2nd Gen Eero mesh is moving in later today. I'm...

    New MacBook Pro can't see old Time Machine backups

    I have a Mac Pro 5,1 running Mojave 10.14.6 connected over ethernet that I'm using to share a disk for my two laptops to use as Time Capsule. My 11" MBA (2015) running Mojave 10.14.6 - no problem. I pointed time machine to the shared disk and in less than 12 hours it completed a sparsebundle...

    Turn USB RAID enclosure into backup solution; RAID or JBOD?

    Been juggling a few different backup solutions in my home, limping by on scattered USB drives and an old Time Capsule that we've outgrown. Don't want to spend the money on a full NAS like a QNAP, thought it might be cheaper to trick out an old USB3 RAID enclosure to handle Time Machine backups...

    "This disk is used for Time Machine backups"

    I can't update to Mojave, the software is correctly downloaded but then I get this screen: "This disk is used for Time Machine backups" is the translation. This is not true! I am using a Time Capsule, for years now. Some people say that deleting the file Backups.backupdb is the solution for...
