    Hi Folks,

    Got a strange issue i cant suss... setup is Snow Leopard & Time machine on the latest version. Backups have been working fine for a year then a few days ago I noticed the Time Machine scheduler started creating a complete new sparsefile and ignores the original one its been using just fine until now appending the file name to "Machinename 1.sparsebundle". As soon as I delete it the scheduler simply re-creates.

    The original sparefile works fine... verified it, can open and restore content from it... just for some reason it TC wont pick it up and incrementally back up to it...

    Cheers for any advice!

    Hey Stridemat - yes running wireless, will try going hardwired and see if that makes any difference
