I have an external back-up for my Time Machine. I think the power went out while it was backing up, and now I can a message that the drive is "read only" or "unavailable." I've tried to fix it using Disk Repair, but I get this message:


Verify and Repair volume “Time Machine Backups”

The volume Time Machine Backups could not be repaired.

Volume repair complete.Updating boot support partitions for the volume as required.Error: Disk Utility can’t repair this disk. Back up as many of your files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed-up files.


Is there anything else I can try before I reformat the disk and start over with my backups? Thanks!
