Since I upgraded to Lion 10.7.2, I am unable to make Time Machine backups to my Time Capsule.

 

The Time Machine applet in the Menu Bar spins, and when I click on it, I see "Looking for backup disk" is grayed out.  I open Time Machine in System Preferences, and I see the barber pole is spinning next to "Backing up", but under it, it just says "Looking for backup disk".

 

After a while, I get an error message saying "Time Machine could not complete the backup.  The backup disk image "/Volumes/TC/2010 MacBook Pro.sparesebundle" could not be accessed (error -1)."

 

This happens every time.

 

I've tried deleting it and re-installing it ... I've tried powering it down and powering it back up ... nothing seems to get it working again.

 

In addition to using it for Time Machine backups, I had moved a whole bunch of old files to that Time Capsule for archiving ... now I see no trace of them when I try to access the Time Caosule in Finder.  All I see are the Time Machine backups. 

 

Is this a 10.7.2 problem?  And does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?
