When Time Machine tries to backup it gives me this error. Please help. TY
I guess you backup to some HDD connected to your network and not some HDD connected directly to your Mac?
Can you be more specific about your setup?

Time Machine FAQ
Have you looked for similar problems others had?
I have it hooked to to my Airport Extreme. I tired to plug in in directly and same thing....
Check time machine disk for errors.
Run a check in disk utility like you would with your hard drive.
Have you tried restarting your notebook and see if the error goes away?
Yes i have....
Unplug disk from your airport, plug into your mac, fire up disk utility and verify the disk.
I had some really annoying issues with time machine a while back - every couple of months it would corrupt itself
Turns out, it was the external USB drive i had plugged into my airport extreme - it was failing when the disk got to ~500gb of 750gb full.
RMA'd the disk and no problems since.
