Project Description

I have a Time Capsule that I use to backup my Macbook Pro.

My computer was fully backed up today at 11:00

My computer died today after 11:00 (ist Kaput)

So, I bought another used Macbook Pro and installed my hard drive in that Macbook Pro

So, now i have a new computer with my old hard drive in it.

When Time Capsule tried to connect to my new computer to do its normal hourly automatic backup, it recognised the new computer and tried to back it up.

The backup failed, giving the following error message:

“The backup on “Marvin’s Home Time Capsule” is already in use.”

When I clicked on “details” it said, “Time Machine couldn’t complete the backup to “Marvin's Home Time Capsule”. The backup disk image “/Volumes/Home Time Capsule/Marvin’s MacBook Pro (2).sparsebundle” is already in use.

Then when I add or remove backups and then click Use Disk, and enter password, I get the following error message, “The disk image “Marvin’s MacBook Pro (2).sparsebundle” is in use. Try ejecting the disk image.”
