It says the backup is 476.19 GB with only 125.06 GB available.
How do I know if the ext drive is on the exclusion list.
This back up is basically the same data as I backed up on my old iMac.

Well, TM is going to consider it a whole new Mac & Backup, but where did you see 595Gb available in the first post?
Have you run Disk Utility to Repair that Drive?
Can you afford to erase the external & start over?

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...
Have you looked through Pondini's extensive TM help site?
Can't imagine something not being covered there.
