    Just a heads up in case anyone else runs into this issue -

    My Time Machine was refusing to back up anything, complaining that one file wouldn't let it back up. Turns out the culprit was a harmless .DS_Store file, in ~/Library/Mail. I used the Terminal to delete it, and Time Machine no longer complained. :D

    That's good to know. I've had the same problem, erratically. I hadn't seen any fix. I'll try deleting the DS_store next time it happens.
