I have already asked for help with regard to OS X 10.6.8 Combo Update download - error message every time stating 'the following disk images couldn't be opened - reason - illegal seek'


Can't download Snow Leopard system updates - repeated error


My Time Machine backup - which has worked perfectly for many months has suddenly decided 'the back-up disk image /volumes......sparsebundles' could not be accessed!!

Are all these issues related?

Any advice most welcome.


MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
