Re: 10657 error code
I got the solution to this problem at the Genius Bar. As they explained it, Time Machine is software that saves files on the backup drive in a format that can only be read by Time Machine. So, when you open Time Machine, you can click on any file and it will open. If you try to open a file directly from the backup drive, it needs a program to open it, and if Time Machine is not open, you get the error message.
If your computer crashes, when you get it fixed (or get a new Mac)and when you connect the backup drive, Time Machine will recognize it, will ask you if you want to associate it with your computer, and when you say yes, all your backed-up files are availabel and copied back into the computer.

Eortiz, did you try to read the files with a windows PC? Because when you connect the external drive to a PC you should be able to view the files and even be able to change the attributes like read only and hidden.
Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.
Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.
Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.
To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.
You'll find the iPhoto Library at:
"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.
To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.
Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.
Click Start and right-click Computer .
Select Properties .
Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window.
Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
Right-click Start Explore All Users .
Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
Select the View tab.
Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
Click OK .
Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.
Hi, you can delete selected message recipient by using Conversation View in Nokia X3. Please open Messages menu and select Conversation view, now select option on any message recipient then select Delete Conversation to delete the messages sent by a particular recipient. You can delete Calls from the log by opening Log Menu and selecting "Clear Log lists". You cannot move any Messages directly to the Memory Card or to a folder in Memory Card. However you can backup all Messages, Contacts, Calendar, Notes...etc to the Memory Card by going>Menu>Settings>Sync & backup> Create backup option. This will create backup on which you select like Messages, Contacts...etc to the Memory Card. You can restore the created backup by using the "Restore backup" option in the same Sync & backup Menu. It is also possible to restore the backup by directly opening the backup file which you have created in the Memory Card.
I am afraid i gave in and found an Apple repair company. They sorted it out at a high cost but I cannot function with all my interests without a machine that I can trust. The engineer said he found my E mail in the waste bin. No idea how it got there or how I could recover it. I had look at the contents of this bin several times and never saw anything resembling mail.
I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.
