I've been running Time Machine on my Power Mac G5 for a while, but just noticed that there was an exclamation point in the Time Machine status on the menu bar saying there was something wrong.

I opened up the Time Machine Preference and it said that the Latest Backup Failed. When I pressed the failure link on the preference panel a dialog box popped up titled "Time Machine Error" and said that the reason was "Unable to get status of backup volume"

The volume is a 2TB LaCie drive and Disk Utility says that the volume has no errors. I tried running Disk Warrior on it, but I think the drive is too big and Disk Warrior keeps running out of memory.

I ran "Repair Permissions" on the drive, but it didn't seem to see any problems.

Any ideas on how to figure out what's going on?
