    Time Machine Backup Failing

    Hi,

    As of 10.40am this morning time machine backups have been failing.

    The only on screen prompt i get is to run disk utility, to repair the disk which i have done.

    My setup is a mac mini with two hard drives, with one server os hdd backing up to hdd 2.

    It has been working fine for the past 7 weeks since it was setup.

    Many thanks for looking

    I don't use Time Machine as I find it quite restrictive. I tend to use CCC

    yeah i don't like it every much either tbh, i resolved it by deleting the folder where backups were stored and restarting the service.

    Got a link for that software?
