I get this error  when trying to backup my Macbook Pro to time capsule.

"The backup disk image “/Volumes/Data/Ross’s MacBook Pro.sparsebundle” is already in use."

Time capsule, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    This is the most common post here.. since mountain lion .. at least 3-7 a day.


    C12 here. http://pondini.org/TM/Troubleshooting.html


    Reboot the whole network.. but restart in correct order.. modem.. router/TC .. clients 2min gap.


    It should work.. but tomorrow you will need to do it again.. and always forever more.. tomorrow.


    As a suggestion .. reset the TC to factory and do the setup again.


    This time use SMB names.. TC, wireless and hard disk. Short, no spaces.. pure alphanumeric.. it has been helping.
