    The TC may have run out of internal space..

     

    Sometimes when you have upgraded a computer it will not delete older backups as it should.. the only way forward is a full wipe of the TC and start over.. you can archive off the old backups using the latest utility which finally returned the archive function and plug in a USB drive of the same size as the TC disk.

     

    Wipe by using erase and start over.

     

    You can also use a USB drive as TM target plugged into the TC but it is slow.. much slower than the internal drive.
