MBL purchased March 2012 and networked seamlessly with pc (XP) and laptop (Windows 7) via ethernet. In May replaced pc with Mac. Time Machine immediately found MBL and appeared to work as required backing up to the schedule. About a week ago - and I have not installed any updates or new software recently - I noticed that Time Machine was not connecting to MBL in a random way. When this occurs I cannot get it to reconnect or even find MBL. I can find the Public access to MBL as a guest, but trying to connect as a user it refuses my password which I know is correct because I wrote it down in two locations when the software was originally installed.
When I do look at the Public backup as a guest, I find that there are none of the new files and folders created since connecting the Mac.
I have looked at the forums and see that others have experienced some of these sort of problems, but really don’t understand the solutions offered or their relevance to be able to make use of them.
What’s going on please?
