    Hi,
    Dunno if this was asked before.
    I store all my music files on the Time Capsule, but almost every time I put the mac to sleep, turn back on, open the music playing software and it says music files could not be found. Tried Clementine and Jriver.
    It is quite annoying I have to import the music library all over again.
    Does anybody have the same issue?
    Thanks.

    Why are you using TC as a NAS? Where are the backups going?

    Hi,
    It is a 2TB 2011 TC and my backup only takes up ~600G so I store most of my media files on TC.

    So when the TC drive fails, it will take out all data on it plus all backups?

    Consider a USB 3 HD for you library or documents, photos, music, and videos. Then TC can backup your startup disk and the library disk.

    I'm just using my Time Capsule for backup, but I do notice when the backup completes the TC disk is ejected each time. Then when a backup runs again it mounts the disk again. I suspect what is happening is when the backups complete or the system sleeps it ejects the TC disk and it is not mounting again until another backup mounts it, so since the disk is not mounted, those app can't see the library.

    Hi,
    Actually I consider my TC as a wireless NAS first. I don't really have much to backup at first and I don't want HD attach to my MBP by wire, and it is cheap compare to NAS+router.

    All eggs ( data and backups) in one basket (one HD) equals bad karma.
