Question: Time Capsule Error code -6584

oi,


I use my Time Capsule both @ home and at work, at home I use it wireless and finally had a working setup/configuration I saved so hopefully it will work when plugging it in and load the saved settings.


Still am struggling to make it work at work, it work yesterday but did not save the settings, light is green, it's supposedly setup but I keep getting a error code -6584 when I try to "Enter Time Machine.

How do I resolve this (and hopefully prevent it next time...)


Thanks!

Time Capsule-OTHER, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

Thanks for the reply... I tried all these steps, including setting it up countless times. The configuration that worked yesterday I exported and imported today, and I get error 6584.


I really like ALL my  hardware/software (almost too much :-) but this is ridiculous.. I am returning the Time Capsule tomorrow (hopefully a Genius can save my backup else I'm seriously screwed) and I'm going to buy another external disk to use as a backup device, looking at this one: http://bit.ly/kig1Ez

I've exactly the same problem. I have a Mac and a Macbook both with Lion OSX. Neither will run Time Machine. I can however copy files to my Time Capsule so it's not that.


Can't reset Time Machine as the previous person said because time machine won't run in the 1st place.

Yes, you can. That replaces the preference file, which may be damaged. Among other things, it tells Time Machine where to look for your backups.


If that doesn't help, try the things in #E4 of that same article.

I had the same -6584 error upon clicking "Enter Time Machine", and I was able to resolve it by option-clicking the Time Machine icon and then selecting "Verify Backups". It took some time over wifi for the 2tb of files, but once it completed, I was again able to enter Star Wars mode.


Cheers

I deleted the following file and TimeMachine was then reset to default and would run again.


/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist


Under Lion in order to find it you need to hold the ALT key and the click on GO on the top toolbar where Library will now appear.

I was having the same issue... but it seems it was because I was not able to see the back drive I selected. So I simply launched Time Machine from System Preferences, then clicked on "Select Disk"


Once I was able to see my back up drive, the issue went away.


By the way, I am using an Iomega NAS, and LION had issues with SMB connections. However it seemed to be fixed with the latest LION update. I also had to do a firmware upgrade from Iomega. No more issues for me.


Hope this helps

Hi notetoself.net


I was having the same issue and read so many stuff both here on Apple and other forums and was still not able to fix the problem.

However, your simple solution of an Option Click did the job, it was so automatic for me. I just did the option click and it just gave me access to the backup files. Before I all I got was error -6584.


Thank you.

I have the same problem, but don't know what you mean by option clicking. I tried placing the cursor on the time machine icon in the desktop tray, holding down the alt-option button and clicking and nothing happened. This is a maxbook, running lion, connected to my time capsule by wifi. The time machine backup worked just fine until a week ago and now I am getting -6584. I am not aware of any change in my setup. The wifi still works and my iMac which is connected by Ethernet cable has no problem with time machine.
