I have a power mac G4 running OSX 10.5.8. I was running time machine with an external usb drive and all was good until the drive failed. I now have a new external usb drive, but I keep getting errors when TM tries to do a scheduled backup. It tells me either "The backup volume could not be found", or "Unable to complete the backup. An error occured while creating the backup directory". If I restart my computer then tell TM to backup now it works fine. Can anyone tell me why?

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
