    My Time Capsule (2013) keeps getting currupted. The Time Machine sparsebundle won't mount, so the backup just goes from "Preparing backup" to nothing, just states the last time it backed up my data. No error message at all.

    This is happening every other week (almost). After i format the drive, it works just like it should. But it short of defeats the purpose of having a backup drive...

    Anyone had similiar issues?

    Sounds like a bad drive in there and you should get a replacement TC from Apple.

    Yep, bad drive or controller. In either case, take to the nearest Apple store. Hopefully it is under standard warranty or Applecare.
