This week I used Apple's workaround for disabling FileVault as per this article:

Mac OS X 10.4: FileVault - "There isn't enough space on your hard disk..." alert

After successfully backing up my home folder, creating a new, non-FileVault account, transferring the backup to the new account and deleting the FileVault account, now Time Machine won't backup my new home folder to the Capsule. I even restored the factory settings, including creating a new wireless network. But the backup attempts keep failing and Time Machine won't tell me why.

I'm using Snow Leopard 10.5.7 on a black MacBook 2.2 GHz w/2GB RAM and a 500GB Time Capsule.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Black 12" MacBook, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB DDR2 SDRAM running Leopard 10.5.7; Time Capsule 500GB; iPhone 3G running 3.0 OS.
QUOTE Thanks
