Are you talking about preparing to backup? If so go to the little Time Machine icon in the menu bar and click stop backing up. Reboot your Mac then hit back up now.

yes that was what I am talking about but after many fusing and even repairing disk "had no red issues" I had to do the last resort and now reformatted TM's hard drive says it will take an estimate of 4 or 5 days to complete 600GB on a RMBP SSD
