  1. Turn the device upside down to reveal the rubber section of the back plate. Using a metal spudger, carefully wedge the blunt tip into the space between the aluminum back plate and the rubber, separating the two pieces. This may take a few minutes to pry the rubber off completely. Once your are able to get a grip on the rubber it is easier to peel it off using your hands. Don't worry about re-applying adhesive to the rubber; the remaining adhesive has plenty of strength to affix itself to the aluminum.

What’s the max hard drive a Time Machine can take?

ice2257 - 답글

This answer: What's the biggest HDD that will fit on my Time Capsule? suggests that you can use pretty much any available drive. If it could take a 4TB in 2014 (one of the answers), I don’t think there would be any limit practically speaking.

Great guide. One note. My unit was quite old and the rubber mat was brittle. Even with a heat gun and spudger I still tore it in several places. This might be avoided by heating up a cloth in a microwave first and applying it to the rubber before beginning to pull it off. Just a thought.

I’m not seeing a guide for the Apple Time Capsule 2TB MC344LLA / A1355 so I’ll have to see which one is closer to my model when it arrives,

But in the meantime has anyone been able to upgrade the hard drive past 2TB without any issues?

Is a Firmware update needed to do so?

I installed a 3 TB about 7 years ago in mine. i’m here now because I can’t get it to power on.
