Time Machine backups-verified & now wants to make a new backup... No!
Hi-I have a 2014 MBP running the latest Catalina (10.15.4) and about 3 weeks ago Time Machine said it needed to verify my Time Capsule (old) and once that was done it needed to create a new backup. I said ok and it took a long time but I got the message it was done and a new backup was created.
Well, I have gotten a couple more messages that the Time Capsule has been verified and needs to do ANOTHER new backup! I checked and my Time Machine backs now only go back to 30 April instead of many months or even a years worth of backups.
I don't want this to keep happening. Any idea what is going on? Is my Time Capsule going bad? I do backup to a NAS and to the cloud and do a clone now and then so I am covered BUT I don't know what's going on with my Time Machine backups...
Thank you for your help, Judy
Hi Graham-Thank you for your reply. How exactly do I go into my TC and rename the old backup file into a subfolder? Do I create another folder on my TC and name it "old backup"? I am clueless here. Can I expect this behavior to continue? Does your "crystal ball" give you any hints? I will do a clone backup tonight for sure! Judy
