Time Machine size limit ERROR

I’m trying to change the size limit for my Time Machine but without success. I have a 4TB driver and sparsebundle file already takes 1,06TB. I want to change the max size limit from 3,8TB to 1,5TB but what I can see is the info: UPDATING… and after some time I’m logged off and the procedure of updating stops.

Do you know how to fix this? Last time my backups took 3TB and I don’t want to repeat this…

I remember reading about a bug about size some time ago.

I had mine set to 100 % and used the total share for timemachine so never had the problem.

Indeed, see: https://community.wd.com/t/timemachinebackup-works-intermittently/258142

I had to set to 100% too, which defeat the purpose…

I understand what you are saying but I have an issue with setting a size limit. I can’t do this because it takes a lot of time and then I’m logged off and it stops. I would like to encounter an issue with backing up time machine when the size limit is changed but I can’t even do this…
