We can't get our imac to mount our time capsule for backup anymore...

 

Here is the time machine buddy error:

 

Starting standard backup

Mounted network destination using URL: afp://myemail@Time-Capsule.local/Time%20Capsule

Backup destination mounted at path: /Volumes/Time Capsule

Failed to mount disk image /Volumes/Time Capsule/User Name’s iMac_001f5bf139ed.sparsebundle (DIHLDiskImageAttach returned: 109)

Waiting 60 seconds and trying again.

Ejected Time Machine network volume.

 

 

It continues to repeat that message after 60 seconds.

 

Any ideas? I've tried renaming the old sparsebundle on the Time Capsule in hopes that it wouldn't recognize it anymore and that may fix something creating a brand new backup or something but it was a no-go.

 

 

Back history:

 

It's been a while and this Time Capsule was one of the ones that died from power issues and apple replaced it free of charge and moved our data for us to the new one. I'm pretty possitive this worked at some point afterwards but I'm not entirely possitive.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Time Capsule

    Have you looked through Pondini's extensive TM help site?

    Sorry John, I have no idea how to force it, but did you have TM turned off when you renamed that file?

    No? I'll try doing that though incase it does something...

    Sorry, I posted from the wrong account. I'm helping my dad "John" at our work with his Time Machine while the John-S posts are for MY time machine at home...LOL. As if things weren't confusing enough

    Doing the renaming did nothing so I'm moving the file to another computer and then I'm going to delete it and see if that fixes the issue.
