    My iMac gives an error when trying to backup, so I'm trying to erase the sparsebundle and start over. Every time I try, i get an error saying "The operation cannot be completed because the item 'bands' is in use."

    Any ideas on what "bands" is and how I can erase the TC? Is there a way to restore to factory settings instead of trying to erase the sparsebundles? (plural because I back up both my MB and iMac on it.

    If you're wishing to wipe out all backups on the TC, then go into your AirPort Utility, select the Disks tab, select the TC's HDD and click on "Erase".
