since a couple of days, my Time Machine backup do not work and stays on "Looking for backup disk" (at least the whole night without starting).
I still can open Time Machine and navigate in its history.
I'm running Lion 10.7.2 and I'm using a MBWE White Light with the latest firmware (.12).
I don't know if it's normal but some of the files in the /DataVolume/.timemachine folder have strange rights.
/DataVolume/.timemachine # ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 8 WD_Backu root 4096 Nov 3 19:34 .
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 127 Nov 1 10:51 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 WD_Backu root 81 Oct 21 20:41 .AppleDB
drwxr-xr-x 2 WD_Backu jewab 21 Jul 3 12:12 .AppleDesktop

drwxr-xr-x 3 WD_Backu jewab 25 Jul 3 12:12 Temporary Items
drwx--S--- 4 WD_Backu jewab 4096 Nov 3 19:34 iMac.sparsebundle
Do you know if it's normal?
Is there a way to solve the "Looking for backup disk" problem?
Here is Time Machine log:

The rights on the files are normal. I have seen this before, one of my friends was having the same issue here, we look in the Apple forums, there are a lot of users reporting this issue, in the end, we just reset the NAS and Time Machine started to work.
