    Hi there,

    a few days ago I found out, that the application-icons on my Time Machine - Backup are wrong. (iMac 27; OS X 10.11.2; Time Capsule 3TB via WiFi; Icons see attached screenshot). All other folders are ok.

    First I thought it’s because of my WiFi-Network is slow, thus I connected my Time Capsule via LAN. Same result as above, wrong Icons.

    Running Time Machine on a normal USB HD everything is fine…

    I’v reinstalled Mac OS, created a new Sparsebundle-File via Airport-Utility. Without success, the problem still exists.

    However, I’m able to restore applications, but it’s irritating…

    Does anybody know whats wrong there?
