Hi all, I think my Time Machine is corrupted, and I may have to reinstall it in Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have a late 2007 24 Al iMac. From time to time, when TM goes to do a backup, I get this error message: Checking my Time Machine Buddy widget, it shows two errors in the log: Starting standard backup Backing up to: /Volumes/G-DRIVE/Backups.backupdb Error: (22) setxattr for key:com.apple.backupd.ModelID path:/Volumes/G-DRIVE/Backups.backupdb/~ iMac size:7 Error: (-50) Creating directory 2013-09-14-045001.inProgress Failed to make snapshot container. Error: (22) setxattr for key:com.apple.backupd.ModelID path:/Volumes/G-DRIVE/Backups.backupdb/~ iMac size:7 Backup failed with error: 2 When this happens, all future backups encounter the same problem unless I force eject the external drive, power it down, then turn it back on to mount it. The external drive is a G-Tech. Both the external drive and connecting fw800 cable are new. Any ideas on what could be causing my TM problem? If I have to reinstall TM, I do have the SL disc. Im not too sure how to install only TM from it. Any help is greatly appreciated!
