    Time Machine works making about 10 days worth of backups, then returns the following error.

    "The backup disk ran out of space unexpectedly. Time Machine will try to make more space available by removing expired backups during the next scheduled backup."

    It never deletes old backups and will not work again until I delete the oldest backup manually.
