I am using a 5th generation airport extreme connected with 1TB external portable hard disk as a time capsule. It does not do automatic backup at periodical intervals. I have to connect it to do a backup for which I have to enter the username and password. The system saves the password in the keychain but does not remember it because the next time I try to use it then it displays the system login user id and it it forces me change the user id for the hard disk and to re-enter the password. I would like the system to remember the settings and do the time machine backups automatically.
