AirPort Time Capsules do not come with any cloud-based storage. They are an entirely network-local backup and storage device. Whomever told you it it had storage "on the cloud" was not being truthful. You can see the full specs for the AirPort Time Capsule on Apple's web page. As you will see: there is no mention of any cloud-based storage at all on that ...

When you click the time machine icon in the menu bar, hold the option key. The menu will change to "Browse other time machine backups", and you should be able to access the old machine's backup in that manner.

The data returned from Backblaze ought to be correctly recognised by the Mac. Folders like iPhoto have a special structure that the Mac shows you as a single file, but in reality it is just a folder.

I suppose you could put together a script which runs a diskutil eject command on the specific volume, then schedule it to run at 4:30 PM each day via cronx or another scheduling app. When you go to leave at 5:00 PM, the disk has already been ejected. The drive will always be something like /dev/disk2, so the script only needs to eject the specific volume ...

Double-click the sparse bundle to mount the Time Machine Backups or Backup of <computer name> partition (but don’t select it). That may take a moment. Select the sparse bundle again, and click the Partition tab towards the top of the window. Type the desired size in the space provided, or, in the diagram that appears, drag the lower ...
