Since many days, my time capsule, isn't making any backups. I checked the light status and its green, when choosen the command for backup now, it spends good amount of time (10-15 min) saying "preparing backup" and then failing, and upong entering "Time Capsule" preferences and choosing the red icon, I am showed the following message enter image description here

I tried restarting time capsule and my mac. But nothing works, My system is updated too. How can i fix this problem and why is it happening?

It clearly advises you to use Disk Utility and repair your back up disk.

time machine error

  • I did that already, nothing happens. – Nofel Mar 9 '14 at 7:17
  • If as you say you do not see the time capsule in disk utility, then you did not repair that drive. – Ruskes Mar 9 '14 at 17:00
  • is it a USB disk, or how is it connected during the Disk Utility process ? – Ruskes Mar 9 '14 at 17:06
