My Time Capsule stopped backing up and there's a slow-blinking amber light. The error message I get is that the backup disk is not available. Any idea how to resolve this?

Time Capsule 802.11n (4th Gen), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    First step is just to reboot the network.. after you reboot the TC alone.


    Restart network in order.. modem.. router/TC.. clients with 2min gap.


    If there is no change.. report back.. there is very little you can do with a version 6 utility. So we will need to get you to do a few things.
