For the past couple weeks, my Time Machine has not been backing up file from my MacBook Pro.  I've had the Time Capsule for a couple years now.  Entering the Time Machine I discovered that there are no files before "yesterday" yet there are only 161.0 GB of 998.06 GB available.  A "Failed" message apprears with a popup message: "The backup disk image “/Volumes/ELBs Time Ca/ELB’s MacBook Pro.sparsebundle” is already in use."  How can it be in use when Time Machine takes hours looking for the device? 

 

Another error code message also pops up from time to time: Finder error code -6584.  What is that?  And how is it fixed? 

 

All software is up to date on this computer and Time Capsule. 

MacBook Pro 15
