my imac pro has been updated to Mojavie version 10.14.2 for months.

It keeps telling the message for my time machine "time machine completed a verification of your backups......." and asks me to create a new backup as show in the pic.



I am using airport time capsule with 2TB. Is there any way to solve it or is it a hardware failure i.e. faulty HDD in my time capsule?

[doublepost=1547083009][/doublepost]Maybe your old TM backup is corrupted? Can you browse this backup in finder?

Did you scanned the HDD with disk utilities?

To browse backup, go to TM volume and enter inside "Backups.backupdb", then "name of your computer". You'll then see a lot of folders like "2018-12-08-011304" (backups ordered by dates). If you are unable to do so, the hard disk could probably be damaged (corrupted) or failing...

And yes, I forgot that it was a Time Capsule, thus unavailable in DU.

Or connection problem with your Time Capsule?
