Greetings and thanks to the community.
I have an IMac desktop and use a My Book 2T as backup running Time Machine. I have been getting fail messages, “Time Machine could not back up to 'Joe’s My Book BU.” There was also a time when I would get a fail message dealing with My Book not being able to create a folder. I have not seen that one for awhile. My Book has backed up data but I no longer trust it as my back up.
I bought the My Book at a big box store some time ago.
I came to the WD site to research my issue and noticed that there are two My Books. The one to be used on a Mac has Mac written on the faceplate. Mine does not.
Is it possible that my My Book was never formatted to the Mac and therefore is not working properly? I am really hesitant to reformat My Book without getting a consult from you folks.
