My Passport Air failure

Keep getting these messages:

Time Machine couldn’t complete the backup to “My Passport Air”.

Files can’t be copied onto the backup disk because it is read-only. You may need to repair or erase the disk using Disk Utility. If the disk can’t be repaired, select a different disk for backups.

macOS can’t repair the disk “My Passport Air”

You can still open or copy files on the dis, but you can’t save the changes to files on the disk. Back up the disk and reformat it as soon as you can.

BUT I can’t access it. What dop I do?



It seems that Time Machine is not supporting file format of My Passport Air and asking for reformatting. As you are getting error message with Disk Utility, you should try to use WD Drive Utilities for Mac to reformat drive in HFS+ file format. Then create Time Machine backup.
