How's it going.Let me read of your question. Give me a minute.
You're having troubles backing up, is this correct?
$5 is a deposit. The $30 is for the answer to the question.
I'm sorry for the confusion, would you like me to refund this
Are you happy with these costs, If you are we can continue.
Ok - please tell me what your issues are?
You mean the name of the drive?
When a drive is set as a back-up drive MAC OS changes it so t can be identified. Is this not what you mean?
This is by design.
This is normal, are you chasing the name of it?
For security, Time Machine won’t do a backup if it detects that the identity of your backup disk has changed. This can happen for several reasons:
You erased or reformatted your backup disk or partition.
You deleted the disk image for your backup disk.
You attached another disk to your Mac with the same name as your backup disk.
Someone is trying to steal your information by tricking your Mac into backing up to an unauthorized disk.
If you attach another disk to your Mac, give it a different name from your backup disk. Then make sure your backup disk is correctly identified. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Time Machine. Reselect your backup disk.
Does your Airport have a static ip address?
I can help you by remote
If you have erased the drive then you have to start all your backups over by removing the previous backup drive from Time Machine Preferences

I made an offer do you see it?
I lowered the price.
No I have no access to your account or what you have paid but the Remote Service is extra and on top of the original cost. None of us are paid yet
Right no expert gets paid until you rate OK or higher or Accept the Premium Service offer. Which is me now the other expert opted out
I get paid and the site gets paid if you are satisfied. The original amount is just amended to add the remote service. Do you want to do that? Your satisfaction is guaranteed you do not lose anything either way.
