Same here. Previously Time Machine worked fine, but suddenly i cannot connect to wd_backup anymore. It is still visible via Finder but i cannot connect to it. Clicking on Connect as, results in nothing. Could it be that i am using the Public share to save the music and movies etc. and not respecting the size that Time machine needs to incrementally backup? I read that setting up quotas does not work anyway.
Problem is that when i start up Time machine preferences now, i have to set it up again. When i try to log in it hangs the TM app for ages and i need to force stop it. So i cannot get to the sparsebundle any more. Let alone deleting it… but is takes 229gb of my MybookWorld 2TB drivespace!!! Do i really need to reset to factory defaults and format the whole 2TB?
Why can’t my Imac connect to WD_Backup anylonger? Why doest the Time machine app hang? Why did it stop working all of a sudden whilst it worked before?
Could it be that the firmware of the Mybook World 2TB edition is really buggy? If it is than Western Digital must be penalized because on the Box it states that Time Machine Backup must work… but not properly!!
I do not want to format, i want to enter the sparsebundle again and retrieve files i backed up!! Otherwise i would be using Time Machine!!!
I googled for a week and this is my first attempt to throw this in public for some real help.
If WD’s only answer is to reset to factory defaults than the whole Mybook series and WD products are utter ■■■■!!!
Hope to get a real answer soon.
This is not a TIME MACHINE Problem nor an Apple problem, it is a WD MyBOOK world EDITION 2TB version problem!!!
FIX THIS PLEASE!!!
looking forward to an early reply
(It worked 2 weeks ago… but since last week it stopped and i have tried everything but no luck…)
