    Sounds like you got this one earlier:

    Once you get that one, you can't continue backing-up to those backups.  See #P3 in Using Time Machine with a Time Capsule.

     

     

    Your best bet now is to erase the TC's internal HD.     See the green box in #Q5 in the same link if you're not sure how to do that.

    Not a biggie.  Sometimes after using the TM browser, the sparse bundle doesn't get unmounted.

     

    See if it's listed in the Finder sidebar or on your desktop;  if so, just eject it.

     

    If not, see #C12 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.

    Yeah, NASs have a way of complicating things. 

     

    You may have to reset the NAS.  I'm not familair with them, but from what I read here, at least some WDs have a reset button and a default password.  That may reset the connection to the NAS.  But check WD's instructions and/or website first.

    It's the same thing mounted twice.

     

    The names (at the top) are the same.

    The Server address is the same.

    Everything in the General section is the same.

     

    The "-1" in the Name & Extension box is used when the same volume is mounted twice.

     

    In this case, probably once for a backup to be performed, and again for you to look at the backups.  The backup process runs as the "root" user (with permission to everything), but looking at the backups is done as whatever user you're logged-on to, with that user's permissions.

    Try ejecting and reconnecting.

     

    But part of this may be the way your NAS is set up -- does it have multiple users or accounts?  If so, that may be at least part of the problem.

     

    And/or there may be something like an alias on the NAS.

     

    Your best bet may be to re-check your setup vs. the instructions, and/or check with WD.

    I think I am just going to bite the bullet and start again.

    You may not have to do that.

     

    QUICKCHECK ONLY; FILESYSTEM DIRTY

    Runtime corruption detected on /Volumes/TimeMachine/Alex’s MacBook Pro.sparsebundle (fsck_hfs -q termination status: 3)

    That means the file system wasn't unmounted cleanly; ie, was disconnected while in process.  It did not attempt any repairs.

     

    Recovery backup declined by user.

    Did you get a prompt about trying to repair the backups?   That might be preferable to erasing and starting over.

    Then you might want to try repairing the backups, per #A5 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.
