Today I called Apple is I needed to access time machine.  The Apple rep assisted me and I thought all had been sorted.  However, just a few moments I tried to ensure that Time Machine was still being backed up - time machine's pop up note said 'files can't be copied onto the back up disc because it appears to be read only.


I am using a MacBook Pro bought in Sep12.
