    I had problems downloading from Vuze, I get this error message Error : I/O Exception while initializing download of '' Configuration error. This is not a directory: /Volumes/Time Machine Backups 1/vuze downloads

    So I misread some advice on a vuze forum and deleted the file that says "volumes" now I cannot mount my external HD that has my time machine back ups or any of my other stuff. The external shows up in disk utility and I ran a repair on it but no luck. Please help I'm lost without that Drive

    Go to terminal and do the following.

    cd /
    mkdir Volumes
    sudo chown -R root:admin Volumes
    sudo chmod -R 1777 Volumes
    Go to disk utility and see if it plays ball. Then ditch Vuze and get transmission. ;)

    With regard to the core problem though, did you actually check to see if there is a directory called vuze downloads on Time Machine Backups 1?
