    The last time I connected my external drive that I use for time machine was in March. I just connected it and opened Time Machine. It only shows the last update it did. Its been connected for about 2 hours and it hasn't done anything. I can't find any start or backup now buttons.

    Can any one tell me how to force it to update now?

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

    You need to reenable time machine in system preferences.

    Great - Thanks Appleguy.

    It was already enabled. I disabled it and re enabled it. Maybe that will do it.

    System preferences>Time Machine then flip the switch to turn it on?
