    I had to delete my Time Machine backups from my Time Capsule. Now it had to start over, it was at 70GB/126GB and then I had to restart my comp. Now the backup started from the beginning again. It shows that i have 861.7GB left on my Time Capsule so is it going to take up the space used for the wasted backup and use more space or will it rewrite or will it go back to the 70GB that already backed up? Can I have some advice PLEASE?

    When you resume it doesn't immediately continue. It has to verify all the files on the Time Capsule first before it keeps going. Unless you canceled the verification because you thought the thing stopped working--if you did that, you can just go to the Airport Utility-->Select Time Capsule-->Manual Setup-->Disk-->Select the disk-->Erase.

    Then restart everything.
