It is so useful even though I don't use Time machine.: )Why don't you read "Playing Media Rant - when will this get better?" comment? Furthermore, once you pay for the Mac version, you get the Windows and Linux versions too, creating great opportunities for cross-machine synchronisation, whatever the platform. Hey, just wanted to say thanks for this post and also the early-on comment about using Console to check the log quickly.Got the error, checked the backupd log messages, found out Apple disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions and conduct of any third parties in connection with or related to your use of the site.
I had the same problem with Time Machine after updating to 10.5.3, and found that I couldn't dismount the Backup volume even though at that point the backup wasn't running. An Introduction to Time Machine Error Code 6584 Although Mac OS X is quite reliable, but still it is not free from glitches. My Timemachine still tells me that my backup volume has 184GB of 974GB available, and that both my oldest and latest backups are none. A handy tip, don't go manually searching through logs. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3123920?tstart=0
I accept that you don't want to scare off the non-techies with a detailed error message but having a little "more" link that described what the problem is would have helped.Rather Looking through the console and all i can find for the latest failure (after i threw out the in progress file from that drive earlier) is nonsense letters. If here available an effective solution for it. Could it be because Timemachine dosn't connect to anything with its unexpected error?
Not sure what else to try. Did you do the cd command?Customer: no just type the stringBeBoo : Do: cd /Volumes/backupsBeBoo : then rm -Rf ooglivie-mac*BeBoo : It should just bring a new prompt backCustomer: ok doneBeBoo BeBoo : Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer, a paid expert support site. You could also try restarting your computer as sometimes the error codes appear due to temporary issues and restarting your computer helps.

No more error happened. http://www.macfixz.com/time-machine-error-code-6584-get-corrupted-deleted-mac-data-recovered Then after move into finder and open the drive and click file that name has ".sparsebundle" extension.
I eneded up with the same error. I'm running Snow Leopard Server to back up remote clients and the server itself to an external drive. Oh well. When i set up the mac, since i'm the main/only user, i set it up as one user.
Maybe it's as simple as remounting the backup volume in some cases?For as many solutions as I've heard to the issue I have a feeling there is more than one cause. http://www.justanswer.com/mac-computers/6q3gg-time-machine-backup-getting-error-code-6584.html It happily whirred away and looked like everything was fine, then at the very end up popped the failure notification again. From there you should be able to do the:sudo rm .inProgresscommand to remove the file. Wow, can't thank you enough - saved our bacon.

Finally, try getting a new copy of the Football Manager application by reinstalling it. I've unchecked the new option for backing up when on battery power, and will see if that change prevents the problem from returning. to navigate to the specific folder?
