Question: Back up in High Sierra

I have not been able to back up to my external drive (Seagate 3TB USB) since I upgraded to High Sierra. Time Machine either hangs in "preparing backup" or after 233MB. The notes suggested I do a disk utilities analysis of the external drive, which came back clean.

Does anyone have an idea of what can be done?



MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.1)
