Hello,

My name is David.

To setup the time capsule perform the steps outlined below:

Click the Apple menu on your Mac (located in the upper left corner) and select "System Preferences." Open "Time Machine" and set the slider to the "On" position.

Select the Time Capsule as your desired backup device. It should automatically ask you to select a disk, but if not then select "Change Disk," then "Time Capsule" and then "Use for Backup."

Enter your Time Capsule's password ***** prompted and click "Connect." Let the Time Capsule to back up your data.

Please let me know the result and if you need assistance with any of the steps.

Also, please provide a positive rating (3, 4, or 5 star) as that is how I receive credit for my

work.
Thanks,
David.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
