    What Format is the drive?


    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.

    Have you used Disk Utility to Verify the Internal drive?


    Since this is USB3, are you using Bluetooth which can interfere with USB3?


    In Console, see if there's a Time Machine log.

    Do not use bluetooth.


    here is seen in Console report. (changed the name for privacy reason)

    Event store UUIDs don't match  naming your internal HD or any other drive/partition being backed-up.  Time Machine can't be sure the OSX internal log of file changes that it normally uses is correct. 

    This happens in the following circumstances:

    1. The first backup of a disk, or to a new location
    2. After booting from your install disc, Recovery HD, or a different OSX volume (usually)
    3. A full restore
    4. Certain hardware repairs (e.g., new internal disk or logic board)
    5. Removal of large exclusions
    6. A very large volume of changes (especially an OSX update)
    7. An improper shutdown of your Mac, or improper disconnection or power loss on the Time Machine drive
    8. If it's an external HD, an improper shutdown or disconnection of the drive
    9. A failed or cancelled backup
    10. Many days without a backup


    It usually causes a lengthy deep scan/traversal (below), so if you see it frequently, you need to figure out why it's happening.
