    For over a month now my Time Machine has failed to back up my Macbook Pro. The message I keep getting is:

    Red "i" message: "Unable to complete backup. An error occurred while copying files to the backup volume."

    I have been on the Apple Troubleshoot, but the only advice is:

    Restart, then try the backup once again.

    I have wiped the whole of my Time Machine and have tried to set it up again, but still no joy! It has backed up 50.1 GB of my laptop, but keeps coming back to the message, "Unable to complete backup. An error occurred while copying files to the backup volume."

    I don't know what to do???? Can anyone please help.

    Thanks in advance.
