Error Occurred while creating a back up folder!! I have had no issues with time machine backing up to an external hard drive, but all of a sudden i keep getting this error. I have re-formatted the external drive, with no joy, the widget says this.

Starting standard backup
Backing up to: /Volumes/Time Machine 2TB/Backups.backupdb
Error: (22) setxattr for key:com.apple.backupd.ModelID path:/Volumes/Time Machine 2TB/Backups.backupdb/Tracy Simpson’s Computer size:8
Error: (-50) Creating directory 2011-02-24-120636.inProgress
Failed to make snapshot container.
Error: (22) setxattr for key:com.apple.backupd.ModelID path:/Volumes/Time Machine 2TB/Backups.backupdb/Tracy Simpson’s Computer size:8
Backup failed with error: 2


Any help would be appreciated.
