    Hi all

    I have used time machine for many months with no problems, but today it keep failing to back up & I get a message saying

    Time Machine Error

    The backup volume is read only

    To select a different volume, open system preferences & choose time machine

    The only problem is I don't know what I'm doing when I open the system preferences :mad:

    Can anyone help please

    Thanks

    Click "change disk" and select your backup drive (even though it's the same one you've been using).
