If you mount the "Data" volume of the Time Capsule and look at the modification date of the "sparsebundle" file for your MacBook Pro, does it show a time before or after you installed Lion?

That's a little too far over my head---I don't know what any of that means. Can you please "dumb it down" a bit so that I can understand it? Thanks!

Open a Finder window. Look in the "sidebar" for your Time Capsule. Select that. You should see a "Data" volume in the main part of the window. Double-click on that to mount it. In the resulting window should be several files with extensions of "sparsebundle". Select the one named after your MacBook Pro, then invoke the Finder menu option File > Get Info. Note the "Modified" date in the resulting window.

When I open a Finder window on the MacBook Pro, I see my wireless network name (xx Wireless Network). My Time Capsule is the same as my wireless network. When I click on that name, in the main part of the window there is a single folder. The name of the single folder is "(name) Wireless Network". If I double click on that folder to open it, there are three items. The names of these three items are:
Without me clicking on any of them, the first one shows a "Date Modified" of: "Yesterday, 9:20AM".
Is that first one the thing that I am supposed to double-click on?

My Time Capsule has a USB drive attached to it. That may be why I first see a window showing two disk drives. Since your Time Capsule only has one disk drive, that step may be bypassed. That "date modified" is the last time that first item was used for a backup. I'm not sure what those two other things are. Their names don't match the naming conventions that I'm used to.

Okay, I guess a call to AppleCare is in order. I hate to speak negatively against Apple, but I am really unhappy with Lion so far. Screen freezes, forced restarts, finger gestures not working as they're supposed to, murky instructions, etc, etc....I get a knot in my stomach sitting here trying to understand it. By reading all of the posts under the "Lion" category, WOW, I'm definitely not alone. Apple somehow blew it on this one.
