The problem suddelny disappeared, I did nothing specific to sort it out. During 3-4 days TM backed up nicely.
And then, AGAIN, it has stopped backing up. Same endless backup trouble.
Seriously? No one has any idea how to fix this out?
I honestly cannot believe this is happening. This device?software MUST work better than this crap.
If you have applecare ring support and see if they can help you sort it..
I have found Snow Leopard and the TC perfectly stable working combo.. that got completely messed up with introduction of Lion.. and never fixed.. rather exacerbated with Mountain Lion. So being old and more logical.. I just stuck with SL.. and TC running 7.5.2 firmware.
From posts here.. I must say I doubt apple have a solution because they created a bug ridden mess with Lion networking and have never fixed it.
In your first post you list external drive.. is that used for backups or are you trying to also include that in the backup to the TM.
I would be inclined to try using TM to external drive.
For the moment.. it may also be well worth the investment in a 3rd party backup software. CCC, Chronosync etc. which use a rather simpler model than TM.
If your network allows perhaps also a rearrangement to relegate the TC to bridge and use your main modem also as router.
Wireless is definitely part of the issue.. at least they multiply like flies under wireless.
Buy the thunderbolt to ethernet or usb to ethernet adapter apple sell and try again using ethernet.
Do a full reset of TM and yes.. sorry.. a wipe and new backup of the MBPr and see if doing a backup only once a day manually by ethernet fixes things..
Time Capsule now isn´t a real backup solution, I´m going back to CCC
