Just read a post about Apple Time Capsule. According to a german data-rescue company there seems to be a design-fault of used HDDs. This fault may lead to mass extinction because of hardware damage. 

Affected devices Time Capsule devices of the 5th generation:

  • 2TB ME177Z / A with Seagate Grenada ST2000Dm001
  • 3TB ME182Z / A with Seagate Grenada ST3000DM001

Recommendation: 

  • Safe your Time Capsule data
  • Maybe switch to Veeam Mac Agent :sunglasses:

Here is the translated article:

Here is the original (in german) article. Here you also see good pictures for illustrating the possible damage:

Hope this helps to avoid backup data loss!

Thanks for sharing, it’s worrying but highlights why agnostic data protection design is so important, when you can’t see into these devices as well, unexpected issues can occur. Just like WD’s cloud connected storage being remotely wiped, it’s an unexpected scenario!
