i have a few issues. Since the initial back up my time machine has not successfully backed up. i assumed it was just doing what it was supposed to do since that is my usual experience with apple products. My fault for not checking. Anyway now it says that "You do not have appropriate access privileges to save file .001f5be7cb57 in folder babysitter." babysitter is my external hard drive. and it pure doesnt back anything up. i have a feeling this wont be an easy or quick fix also.... how do i search forums. i type keywords in the 'search forums' box and get next to nothing relevant to what i am looking for... is there some trick i should know?
