    Question Time Machine problem
    I'm trying to use an external usb drive for time machine. With the drive hooked by USB to my MacBook Pro time machine works fine with it. I don't want to keep it hooked up all the time. I have the USB external drive hooked to my Windows 7 desktop and have it shared (yes I have Macdrive 8 so my PC will see it) and can see and write to the drive from my MacBook wirelessly. But if I try to use that drive for Time Machine (I can choose the right drive because I configured to show unsupported network volumes) I get the error: The Backup Disk image "thenameofmyvolume.sparsebundle" could not be created (error 45).
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like you've done step 1 & 2 of this work around. Still have a way to go.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
