My First N900 Central decided to stop recognizing the hard drive after just one day of use. After formatting and starting over it recognized it for about 4 hours… then lost it again.
I RMA’d that unit… (Still sitting here with my in a box ready to ship out) and my 2nd unit came in on friday (Two days ago)
Now here I am after the 3rd day and I try to setup my TimeMachine Backup… this time I decided to cat5 cable it directly into the unit… hoping the Gigabit would be faster than the wireless for at least the initial backup.
Looks like its going to work says 4 hours to backup… I leave it for about 3 hours…making sure my Macbook doesn’t sleep using a program to disable that.
I just came in the look at it and it’s giving me an error that the Time Machine Volume has changed and possibly there is something gone wrong… don’t remember the exact message now.
Clear out the message and try to run the backup… All I am getting is the attached error below now.
It also won’t let me delete this “SparseBundle” file… but from reading the Apple forums I have found a way to delete all the files within the “Bands” folder in groups… then it let’s me delete the whole file.
I just wanted this thing to backup my MacBook Pro… this is my second unit… what gives? Am I doing anything wrong or should I not be using this unit for TimeMachine backups??
Please help if you have any input… if I RMA this second unit Western Digital is going think I am up to something… but I just want a backup of my Macbook Pro!
