Thanks for the suggestions... (had already seen them on other threads). The articles do not address this issue at all as they deal with basic setup and with TC (Time Capsule) issues not Time Machine issues...
Issue is not that the backups are interrupted or that they stall.. Time Machine says backups complete succesfully.. It's just that TM is ignoring everything but the contents of the Users folder.
Did the Unix command, but that did not solve the problem either.
Removed the TM backup and reformatted the external drive (Extended (Journaled) to see if re-setting it up from scratch would fix it.. still only backs up the "Users" folder completely skipping the OS and Applications.
I have worked with MANY Macs and with many Time Machine backups on my own Macs and on those of my clients... This is the first time I have ever seen anything like this and I am unable to find a similar situation out on the web or on these discussions.
