    Since installing 10.7.2 Time Machine no longer backs up.

    I get the error message "the backup disk image '... iMacsparsebundle' could not be accessed (error -1)"

    Any ideas anyone?

    Update: At 5:30 pm yesterday, Time Machine started working again! Must be one of those 'back door updates'.

    Further update

    The error recurred after I shut down the computer.

    I'm hoping the Time Capsule firmware update released today, will fix the problem.

    Many people like to do time machine backups without ever changing anything.

    I like to rotate different drives in/out of my external docking station. When I rotate a ( slightly older one ) drive in I usually erase the existing partition ( thus forcing a complete new backup ... aka it takes a while ) before getting the first new backup onto that drive.

    I also have local backups disabled.

    Best advice is to make sure one is aware of the tradeoffs involved between just taking system defaults versus a custom strategy.
