Time Capsule Repair 12 Jun 2019 20:13 #11172

Is there a way to launch and repair an Apple Time Capsule Hard Drive and repair it with TTP 11?

No, TechTool Pro works on local drives. The Time Capsule is a type of NAS (Network Attached Storage) device.

Thank you for your reply. I was wondering if there is a way that I can attach and mount it on my laptop to repair it.

You are welcome.

As far as I know, the only other way to connect a Time Capsule is via Ethernet, which does not solve the problem, because it is another type of network connection, and does not make the drive a local drive.

I think the best thing to do would be to take the Time Capsule to a service center and have them remove the hard drive and put it in a suitable enclosure. This is not a particularly good first computer DIY project, as you can see from this example:

Thank you again. I don't know if it makes a difference, but it is the AirPort Extreme Tower with the Time capsule drive, not the flat Airport Base Station.

You are welcome.

If you search at Google for:

replace drive AirPort Extreme Tower

you should be able to find a tutorial for your model. It might be better to specify the model number.
