I got this message yesterday while attempting a routine Time Machine Backup over my network to a 3TB WD MyCloud. I have never seen this message before and from what I’ve found with a simple Google search, this is not good. Has anyone been able to resolve this issue without having to start a new Backup and completely overwrite your existing backup history? Also, does anyone know the root of the problem? In the event I start my Time Machine backups from scratch, what’s preventing this from happening again? It seems like this is a recurring issue with WD devices being used for Time Machine and Neither Apple nor WD is addressing the issue. Has anyone developed a solution or workaround for this?
A couple things I’ve tried:
Updated the drives firmware
Ran all available diagnostics (everything looks good)
Attempted a couple fixes through terminal however all have been unsuccessful
Heres the link to the terminal fix I attempted. It’s a little dated so I’m wondering if the reason it’s not working is because of Mavericks…
I’ve attached a screenshot of the message I’m receiving.
