My daughter's MBP HD died and I had it replaced by Apple. Prior to the failure, the computer was being backed up via TM to a USB drive connected to an Airport Extreme Base Station. I'm having a hell of a time recovering data from this TM backup, and I don't know what's going on. Connecting the drive directly to the MBP does not show the sparsebundle file in the Finder, even if I rig the Finder to show hidden files via a Terminal command. I can see the sparsebundle file just fine if the drive is connected to the AEBS, but every time I attempt to restore via Migration Assistant I lose the connection part way through, and the only way to reconnect to the drive is to reboot the AEBS, at which point I have to restart the restoration all over again (only to see it fail after a few minutes!). I've called Apple support, but they're clueless. EDIT: Problems solved by connecting the MBP to the AEBS via an ethernet cable.
