Is it possible to check of a backup is present of another device? My macbook pro backs up to my 2TB time capsule, my wife's macbook air *should* be backed up there also. The macbook air has died and the apple store have said it needs a new mainboard, I have a third party warranty for it so it is getting fixed, but since the mainboard has the ssd soldered I expect that will be replaced with it. I just want to check if the backup for the Air has been working correctly while I wait for the repair to take place.

actually it looks like you can do it via finder. Go to the time capsule and it shows a .backupbundle. for the air it says last modified on 25th oct, which will be about right. I can't see any contents but I am not bothered about that.
