Erasing a Time Capsule disk
Sometimes your Time Capsule gives you a hard time – the backup isn’t accessible anymore, you have a user not working anymore. But, from my own experience I can say that not much is more important than having a backup of your own files. Imagine someone steals your computer and your business is on it and no backup? Or imagine a fire or flood destroys your computer. So yes, it’s absolutely important to have a backup, more often even two (I have one on my Time Capsule and one I schedule online using Mozy). So erasing Time Capsule disk is the answer.
Here is a step by step instruction on how to erase Time Capsule:
Use the current version of AirPort Utility to erase a Time Capsule disk. You find the AirPort Utility in your Program folder under Utilities.
To erase a Time Capsule disk, use the following steps:
- Open AirPort Utility; it is located in /Applications/Utilities.
- Click the Disks utilities.
- Select the Time Capsule disk.
- Click the Erase… button.
- Give the volume a name and choose the desired erase mode.
