    Hey Everyone,
    I'm running a corei7 13" MBP 2011 and the newest Time Capsule. However, the Time Capsule drive only stays in Finder's sidebar while backing up. Is there anyway to keep it there permanently? It's frustrating to have to restart every time when it could just stay connected as a network drive.

    Mine is always preset under the SHARED heading. I checked the settings in AirPort Utility and I'd recommend verifying that Enable file sharing is checked under the File Sharing section under Disks as that looks to be the only thing that might control visibility in Finder.

    Mine will show up in the disks part when it's being backed up to, however it also shows up in the Shared heading. However, I'm not able to see files I've put on it, it only shows the back up Time Machine has done.

    Also I tried setting it in the OS as a shared folder and it still won't stay.
