    I've never had any problems with time machine until yesterday :/ Now this message keeps coming up every time it tries to back up.

    Did you follow the instruction to repair your disk?

    I don't know what to do to fix it. I've never used Disk Utility before :eek:

    1. Launch Disk Utility, located in your /Applications/Utilities folder
    2. Click on your external drive on the left column
    3. Click "Repair Disk" in the lower right corner

    Thanks :) For some reason it wouldn't repair so I just erased everything and started again :)
