Have you looked through Pondini's extensive TM help site?

Thanks...I started to flip through that yesterday. I did try one or 2 items. Nervous to try others given this has been going on 'forever'....just can't tell how close to completion it is.
Thanks for the pointer...will continue to grin and bear it.

Let us know if it's still a problem, might have to start over, already seems too long.

I am ready to give up...it took >2 days to prepare 30,600 ish files....How do I take an existing time machine setup and make a fresh start? Like a first time backup? Is there anything I need to do to the drive like reformat or repartition? Its an external drive. Maybe I should ask, is that the best thing to do, start all over and do a first time backup?

Turn off TM in System Preferences.
Delete this file...
Use Disk Utility to Verify both Drives & Repair if needed.
Reformat the external drive...
How to format your disks...
(To Install OSX on an IntelMac the Drive it needs the GUID Partitioning scheme mentioned at the bottom.)
Thanks to Pondini, Formatting, Partitioning, Verifying, and Repairing Disks...
Turn on TM & set it up.
