A new thread with a more specific issue:
What in the world does
Error: (-1426) Applying backup protections to /Volumes....
Mean and why is it happening?
Read my other thread for details, but this "protection" application has been going on for hours.
What gives????

    According to MacErrors.h (available with Xcode Tools), the error is:

    errFSOperationNotSupported = -1426, /* The attempted operation is not supported */

    A google search for *backup protections* might bring up something that's applicable.

    Now, that's interesting. BTW, I don't do TM stuff, so never ran across the issue. I only responded because I have MacErrors on the Desktop and it's easy to check for common error numbers.

    Well stated. The primary reason I don't use TM is that It needs restoring to verify; whereas, a bootable backup/clone (using CCC, SD!, or Disk Utility) is immediately verifiable. As for the name thing, I always advocate using names without spaces, even though Apple's pattern is to initially name the boot volume Macintosh HD.
