    Hi everyone,

    I have just had to change my Apple ID password and now the 'Back to my Mac' area of the Time Capsule is saying that I have an invalid Apple ID.

    I have tried adding the new password, deleting the account on the Time Capsule and then re-rentering it, but it won't accept it.

    The username and password are correct as I can log in to everything else with them.

    Any ideas?

    Sorted the issue myself.

    I thought it would be verifying the account details via the Apple Servers, but is was trying to verify it with the details on my iMac, which I hadn't updated yet.

    So went to the iCloud settings on the Mac, updated the password and all good.
