    Hi All

    Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem with the Time Machine. I bought a 500gb Time Capsule last July and it has been running perfectly until a few days agp. I noticed that all my backups were no where to be seen (when entering Time Machine on my MBP) and that it was doing a full backup.. The backup took the guts of 36 hours.

    I've come home today to find that all backups are gone again and it is doing another full backup!!!

    Any ideas what is wrong here? :confused:

    Wow that is odd? Did you re-check where your backups are being stored at and verify it's the TC? Any chance someone else in the house is playing a poor joke on you and deleting them?

    After your done backing up have you checked to actually see the files are present?

    Yeah defo stored on the TC. It's just me and the Wife in the house and she wouldn't have a clue how to delete backups!

    I can see the backup but when I click on it in finder, it takes an age to open and it then says the computer could not full repair the backup
