I am using a 1Tb NAS drive from Western Digital and I have been blighted by the message, Time Machine completed a verification of your backups on “MyBookLive”. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.


I have done a bit of research and I think, in my case, the reason may well have been that since I set up the NAS drive, four weeks ago, I have had three power cuts of 1 to 2 hours in duration. These power cuts were several days apart.


I am wondering if the TM fails to make progress during these times and then throws a hissy fit, giving me the instruction to start the back up again.


I just hope I get no more power cuts. If they persist I will buy and install a UPS, something I never thought I would need to do in a modern house in the UK.
