How do I delete/remove a Time Capsule network?

When setting up Time Capsule shortly after moving, I set up also set up "Time Capsule Guest". For whatever reason, I cannot find the password for it. I would like to elimante this network completely. How can I do that? Guessing I need the password to do this. If so, any way I can find it? Looked on keychain, no luck. Thanks!

Hello Tom
You should be able to edit that information in Airport Utility. You can also reset your Time Capsule settings to resolve that issue as well. Check out the article below on the steps to reset.

    I'm trying to add a 4th Mac to our time capsule. The 3 of us are able to do backups at the end of the day and I'd like to add another on. How should I go about it?
    Appreciate any help
    Thanks

    As LaPastnague says, that should be no problem.
    Unless, of course, the TC's disk is already near full.  Then you've got a bit of a problem.  See the pink box in Time Machine - Frequently Asked Question #33 for details and possible workarounds.

  • How can I delete .sparsebundle  from Time Capsule?

    Hi, can anyone help me with my problem?
    I want to delete backup of my iMac from TimeCapsule to create a fresh new one.
    But it seems not so easy.
    I've turned off TimeMachine on iMac and tried to delete sparsebundle from TimeCapsule via Finder. Result is infinite waiting for removal in Finder dialog window.
    I've tried to select 'no backup disk' in TimeMachine preferences but got the same result.
    All software and firmware are updated to latest versions.
    I cannot erase the whole TimeCapsule drive as described in other posts here because I have a backup of my MacBook Pro on it and I need to keep it.
    Thank you for any help and information.

    Thank you Bob.
    Finally my old backup has been deleted.
    It seems I was waiting not enough.
    Anyway thanks for advice and care
    Now I'm waiting for my new backup to create.

  • Deleted files from Time Capsule by mistake. How can i recover them?

    I was using DiskTracker to organize the contents of Time Capsule. I deleted some folders from within DiskTracker unaware that this would delete files from Time Capsule itself.
    I have several recovery software but none of them is able to see Time Capsule, as it is connected through my Lan. I have a lot of valuable data and i would appreciate any suggestion or help on recovering these folders. Please note that i have not written or deleted any files since the accident.

    I have the same issue and am about to make another post ... Have you head anything or gotten any tips?

  • How can i ensure that the time capsule back up all my data?

    how can i ensure that the time capsule back up all my data and no any data missed during the back up? becz i was backing up my mac to time capsule for the first time and it takes only 5 hourse for 279GB which is doesnt make sense
    any idea, how to ensure that all my data been backed up

    well this tells you why you are having issues.. since you have a filevault and unless you are logged on as that user TM has no way to backup the vault.
    so that is why the backup is so small.
    And you cannot remove the file vault because the disk is too small.. you are in catch 22..
    You cannot backup and you cannot remove the vault..
    Login as the user who has the file vault and copy the files off the computer to a directory on the TC.. Then just delete the files on the computer.. that will then allow you to remove the file vault.
    But never  will I ever use file vaults so I am being theoretical .. please read it up yourself.
    http://pondini.org/TM/25.html
    You are not doing the background reading you need to understand what you are doing..
    read the whole of pondini's info.. or at least skim it so you know what is there.
    Avoid like the plague file vaults..
    When disks go belly up, as they always do.. your files will be lost. Somewhere they need to be stored in the clear.. so why bother .. put better security on the computer and forget vaults.

  • How to print from windows 7 pc on time capsule network?

    I added a new pc with windows 7 on my time capsule network.  Existing network includes 2 macbook pros and 1 mac mini with boot camp and windows xp.  I have been using the windows xp with bootcamp on the mac mini and printing from it for a couple years.  We don't share files between the notebooks and mac mini, just internet access and printing.  My bootcamp side got too full which is why I added the new windows pc (yuk) for my windows programs but I cannot figure out how to get the windows pc to recognize my printer connected to airport time capsule.  I installed the printer software and drivers and connected it with usb and printed but when I connect the printer back to time capsule the pc doesn't see it.  Also, I downloaded bonjour from apple site but still no go.  Any help is appreciated.  As you can probably tell, I only know enough to be dangerous.  That's why I love my Macs, they just work!

    The problem is you loaded the printer directly and now do not have it plugged in.. so delete the printer in the control panel.. then setup the printer again.. this time connect to it as network printer. The bonjour should make it available as a network resource..
    Tell me if you still run into trouble doing that. You may need to load the IP of the TC manually..
    Window7 has higher security level than xp.. and that can sometimes also cause issues.
    Are you using SMB compliant names for the TC, wireless and printer??
    Can the windows 7 computer get internet via the TC? Can you ping it?
    Look up how to reduce the security level in windows to match xp.. I don't remember the details but you have to do some nifty footwork.

    Heat up the bottom rubber mat with a hairdryer for 5-10 minutes to loosen the adhesive, then pull the rubber mat away from the bottom metal plate carefully.
    Then use a screwdriver to remove the 10-12 screws to open up the case.

    1. Download 5.6 for Lion.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482
    Click to open the dmg but do not attempt to install the pkg.. it won't work anyway.
    2. Download and install unpkg.
    http://www.timdoug.com/unpkg/
    Run unpkg on the desktop.. it is very simple.. drag the AirPortUtility56.pkg file over to unpkg.. and it will create a new directory of the same name on the desktop.. drill down.. applications utilities .. there lo and behold is Airport utility 5.6 .. drag it to your main utilities directory or just run it from current location.
    You cannot uninstall 6.1 so don't try.. and you cannot or should not run them both at the same time.. so just ignore the toyland version.. the plastic hammer.. and start using 5.6.. a real tool.

  • How do I connect an old Time Capsule to look for data from a previous OS?

    Hello. I replaced my old Time Capsule with a new one a few months ago, and broke in the new Time Capsule with a fresh backup of a clean 10.9 install after migrating my user account.
    Today, I noticed that there were some folders full of personal data that are neither on my MBP, nor in my Time Machine backups on the new Time Capsule. I am hoping that these folders still exist on my old Time Capsule which I used with 10.8.
    I'm wondering how to search through my old Time Capsule and its Time Machine backups. Specifically, I'm wondering how to connect it to my MacBook Pro, and whether I will be able to search for my (hopefully not) lost data through the Time Machine interface, or through the directory structure contained in Backups.backupdb.
    Can anyone help me out with a plan to proceed?
    Thank you very much.

    1. Turn off Time Machine in System Preferences
    2. Unplug new Time Capsule
    3. Turn off Wi-Fi in the menu bar
    4. Attach old Time Capsule to power
    5. Attach old Time Capsule to MBP via ethernet
    6. Wait for old Time Capsule to appear in Finder > Sidebar > Shared
    7. Select old Time Capsule in Finder > Sidebar > Shared and Connect to old Time Capsule
    8. Select the Data directory
    9. Double-click on the .sparsebundle file that represents the volume that was backed up on the old Time Capsule
    10. Hold down the option key and click on the Time Machine icon in the menu bar and select Browse Other Backup Disks...
    11. Select the Time Machine backup disk you would like to browse and choose Use Selected Disk
    12. Browse old Time Capsule backup in Time Machine environment, restore data as normal, exit Time Machine as normal
    13. Eject old Time Machine backups (the .sparsebundle you mounted) under Devices in Finder > Sidebar
    14. Eject old Time Capsule under Finder > Sidebar > Shared
    15. Disconnect ethernet; disconnect old Time Capsule from power.
    16. Plug in new Time Capsule (it boots); turn Wi-Fi on (reconnect to network, if necessary); turn Time Machine back on in System Preferences

  • How can i use the airport time capsule as a external hard drive?

    how can i use the airport time capsule as a external hard drive?

    Why do you recommend not place things like iTunes libraries or photo libraries on the drive? It was what I am looking for...
    I suggest that you ask the experts over in the iPhoto Support Community about their opinions on placing an iPhoto or Aperture library on the Time Capsule....even if you plan to use a wired connection for your Mac and the Time Capsule.
    But, if Terrence Devlin answers, be prepared for a lecture about why you should not ever do this.
    If you place the iTunes library on the Time Capsule, be prepared for iTunes to give you messages about not being able to find the library.
    In addtion, LaPastenague has the answer for you in a nutshell......corruption problems.
    Bottom line....the Time Capsule is for your backups.....not "everyday" files and especially not libraries.

    I would prefer to answer in your post. as I have tried on two occasions to help.. so far this is the first time I can see you stated  you are using Lion.
    1. Did you download and install the 5.6 utility..?
    I said to do it.. you never said yes.. I did that.
    Please do it. .. you will get no place before you do.
    2. Did you bridge the TC.. ?
    If so it will work perfectly.. please post a screen shot of the summary page from the 5.6 utility. If something is wrong I can work it out from there.
    3. Or ring apple support and get them to walk you through the setup.. there should be phone support for the first week or two.
