    According to a thread in Apple's Discussion forums, a number of us are having trouble with kernel panics when Time Machine is backing up.

    Anyone here having a problem? I'm backing up to a 1TB Time Capsule, and it panics EVERY TIME it tries to back up. Very annoying.

    Try using Disk Utility to repair the sparse bundle of your back up, if you havent already tried deleting it. Then try using TM again.

    Other than that, I suppose your best bet is to format, or at least remove the bundle, and start from stratch, so hard reset the TC, and see if its any better.

    It's tough to do anything with the sparse bundle once it is corrupted. Best to erase it through Time Machine Prefs and (unfortunately)
    do a new full backup. I have had to do that once after interrupting a back up
    by putting my MacBook Pro to sleep during a back up.

    I guess I didn't get that from the 80-some odd posts... so it's sparsebundle corruption that causes a kernelpanic??? Wow... that's not too great of coding on Apple's part. moving on... :rolleyes:
