    Time Machine Error
    My Time Machine has an error -6584 The time machine is not backing up at all in the past two weeks. I have re-set the machine and nothing happens.
    Does anyone know what this means?
    Does it have something to do withe the airport utility?
    I'm running Mountain LIon 10.7.5 on a MAC OSX.

    Could be a corrupt Time Machine Preference file. Read through this discussion from Apple, you may find it helpful.

    You didn't provide us with much info. You mentioned airport utility - are you backing up to a Time Capsule? Also include the year and model Mac you have.

    Well, I forgot to include the link to the Apple Discussion forum. DOH! Here is the link. Sorry about that.
