How to FINALLY fix sparsebundle errors on Apple’s Time Capsule/Time Machine

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, June 7, 2013

IN AN EARLIER ENTRY I’d written that I had successfully resolved sparsebunlde errors on the Time Capule/Time Machine which I use to back up my computer.

At the time, I thought I had.

However, when I examined the disk, I found there was a duplicate sparsebundle.

Typically, unless the file name is changed by the user, on the OSX (Apple’s Macintosh Operating System) duplicate files are indicated by the presence of an Arabic numeral (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) following any file name. Because the sparsebundle, and any errors arising from it are created by the system, they are therefore not available to be changed by the user. Thus, the file names would be appended with a number as explained.

However, problems can be readily noted because either Read the rest of this entry »

Sparsebundle problems with Apple’s Time Machine & Time Capsule? Here’s an easy fix!

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Time Capsule offers automatic backup for your Mac. And it's a full-featured 802.11n wireless base station with simultaneous dual-band support.

Time Capsule offers automatic backup for your Mac. And it’s a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station with simultaneous dual-band support in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously. It delivers great performance and range. And it’s easy to set up from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac.

If you’re like me, enjoying the benefits of Apple’s Time Capsule and Time Machine are among the best, of the many wonderful things Apple has done with computer programming.

However, like all things electronic, or computing, not everything always works 100% properly, 100% of the time.

And, while Apple’s OSX is as good, robust and simple an operating system as it is, it’s not without problems.

One of the problems that occurs is with TimeCapsule’s sparsebundles.

The sparsebundle is the name given to the disk image file that is the backup.

Instead of a single big file, a sparse bundle is a bundle (directory) containing Read the rest of this entry »

What does Unified Info mean on iPhone?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, January 20, 2013

Among the standard WordPress offerings are statistics on each blog, and corresponding search terms that were used to discover any particular entry. Those are very powerful tools, and in the proper hands, can be effectively utilized.

It’s interesting to read the search terms that often lead to this blog, and to this point, though I have considered opining on some of the more “fascinating” or “peculiar” entries, I shall share something a wee bit less salacious.

In fact, it’s not salacious at all.

One such entry was “what does unified info mean on iPhone“?

First, consider what the word “unified” means.

“Unified” means “to make, or become united, uniform or whole.”

The prefix “uni” means “one.”

By implication, unity, unification, or unified means that exactness is present. There is no variation, or difference.

Things are as one. They are made into one. To unify is to make into one.

Please describe what you were doing when the problem happened:

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, March 30, 2010

I was seated at the kitchen table, listening to satellite radio  – “Give A Little Bit” by Supertramp was playing – having taken a large sip of Fighting Cock 103 proof Kentucky whiskey, followed with a swig of Yuengling Original Black & Tan beer, while reading the Sunday funny papers from the Huntsville (Alabama) Times. Outside the window, a couple was looking around the property next door. Here comes the woman now, from around the corner. Oh… the table at which I’m seated is adjacent a window. I was breathing, and my blood was circulating, and I was thinking that …Continue…

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, October 26, 2009

“Trust me!”

(aka, Windows Redux)

Mac: Hello, I’m a Mac.

PC: And I’m a PC.

P: Hey Mac, did you hear the good news?

M: Really?

P: Windows 7 is out, and it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems my last operating system had. Trust me!

M: I feel like I’ve heard this before, PC.

P: What!?

(Time warp…)

PC: Windows Vista’s here and it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems that Windows XP had.

… it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems that Windows ME had.

… it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems that Windows 98 had.
… it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems that Windows 95 had.
… it’s not gonna’ have any of the problems that Windows 2 had.

Trust me.

This time, it’s gonna’ be different.

Trust me.
