Ok either Apple is using us as beta testers or they decided to emulate Micro$oft. I cant believe the amount of time that I wasted ever since the firmware update, trying to get timemachine to work over airdisk. First I thought I could accelerate the process by plugging the external drive directly to my MBP. Already there I had a problem with TM telling me that I dont have enough space for the backup, huh??? My 120gig MBP drive is being backed up onto a 250gig external drive and I dont have enough space??? I removed some data and the backup process began. It was fast enough but when it finished and I plugged the hard drive directly to the AEBS, TM recognized it and when I selected backup now, it created a spindlebundle file, ignoring the whole backup files that were created through the direct connection. I have no access to the earlier backup files when I enter TM!!! Great!!! So then I reformatted the disk and did the first backup directly through airdisk. This time it didnt tell me that I didnt have enough space on the external drive and went directly into backing up my files. But here is the problem, it is taking way too long, I just cannot afford to keep my MBP on for hours. Why cant I backup directly through the MBP the first time? What gives? This has been an incredibly annoying experience, thanks a lot apple!
