I've had my time machine WD elite 500GB for about a month, and yesterday for the first time, I got this message: The backup was not performed because an error occurred. This happened while doing a backup which was 10 days overdue. I got this over and over shortly after restarting the backup and then proceeded to restore the external. I then started a backup from scratch, and I get the same error. I click OK and I start the complete backup again, except it theoretically continues. So if I was 50GB into my backup out of 250, it would start the backup again and say out of 200GB. So I got the error about 3 times while trying to do this complete restore. And once it was ''finished'' (250GB out of 250GB, it started going weird, and continuing. So it was like 250.1GB out 250.1GB and then 250.5GB out of 250.5GB and so on.) And ofcourse during that I continued getting the error message. So now I'm zeroing out the external in hopes that'll fix the issue. Anyone know how I can fix this?
