my time machine just to complete a backup, but it is not listed?

I have three macs backed up on a time machine. The mac, I want to migrate was on the list, but I made a new backup to get the latest version. Now that it's over, it is not on the news on the time machine. No idea where it went? It drives me crazy.

Your question is unclear.

I have three macs backed up on a time machine.

You mean a Time Capsule? They are backed up by Time Machine on every Mac.

The mac, I want to migrate was on the list, but I made a new backup to get the latest version.

Mac that you want to migrate from appeared in the Finder with a sparsebundle? It's still there... Have you opened it manually and check the dates?

Now that it's over, it is not on the news on the time machine

Sorry now it gets too complicated... did you really mean Time Machine here?

If the Time Machine works normally... hourly backup you would not need to do anything special, so I'm lost exactly what you're doing different.

No idea where it went? It drives me crazy.

Me too.. I don't know where he's been... because I don't know what that means, or it you are talking about.

Missing the sparsebundle to the backup?

It is simply not enough the last backup date?

Backup details will be in the paper... you can go through it and find out what happened.

If you are migrating to a new computer before get rid you of this computer... Just use migration between the method of computers... not the method of TM. Transfer works very well... better even... If you connect two computers together through ethernet (love at first sight would be fantabulous)... and transfer on the standard gigabit network. If your method of backup fails for some reason any.

But there are as many reasons for the failure of TM is not easy to understand.

Use a work around if it is important to do this via the backup instead of direct.

for example... a USB plug into the computer and use it as the target for backup... TM has done well above the local level as network drives.

You can also create a clone bootable disk USB using Carbon Copy Cloner who is free to use for one month.

  • Time Machine asking to create new backup, backups, but seems to work very well

    Time Machine tells me that he wants to delete my backup history and create a new backup volume, but it seems to be back up files very well. I use an Apple AirPort WiFi. Must I just keep ignoring Time machine to start a new backup volume? I really don't want to lose my backup history.

    Something is not here.

    When time Machine tell the backup is corrupt and he must wipe... then it can save is more to it.

    That probably makes TM uses your local hard drive to a backup snapshot from the network on your Time Capsule version (or AE more USB drive) is now corrupted.

    Sorry, but your history of Time Machine is now dead and lost... and just need to bury. There is rarely any great point by making a backup of the sparsebundle... but if you are adamant then for sure just copy the sparsebundle to a different location... erase the drive, and then start over... You have no choice.

  • Time Machine every few weeks stopped backup because it must create a new backup. 9 to on MY Cloud EX2 takes 4 full days. Crazy to keep losing all backup dates.

    Crazy to keep losing all backup dates

    Message reads

    "Time Machine has conducted an audit of your backups on"WDMyCloudEX2". To improve the reliability,

    Click Start a new backup to create a new backup. This will remove your existing backup history. This may take several hours.

    Click Back Up later to be reminded tomorrow. Time Machine won't perform backups during this period.

    Is - this common, no way to stop it?

    Just take a brief look at WD for 'My Cloud EX2' site, they list El Capitan as an operating system supported. Mavericks is the latest OS listed. Probably you need to contact Western Digital support.

  • Time Machine must create a new backup

    I received the following message: Time Machine has conducted an audit of your backups on "Personal Cloud."  To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.  Does this mean that to maintain backups, my previous backups will be gone?   I'm basically ignoring tech.  Thank you!

    Does this mean that to maintain backups, my previous backups will be gone?

    Yes.

    A device third-party network attached storage (NAS) or a router is unsuitable for use with Time Machine, especially if it's your only backup. I know that's not what you want to hear. I know that Time Machine accepts the device as a backup destination. I know that the manufacturer says the device will work with Time Machine, and I also know that it usually seems to work. Except when you are trying to restore and find that you can't.

    Apple has published a specification for network devices that works with Time Machine. No third party provider, AFAIK, does meet this specification. They all use the application of "Netatalk" incomplete, obsolete Apple Filing Protocol.

    Apple does not endorse any device third-party network for use with Time Machine. See this support article.

    Network backup, use as destination an Apple Time Capsule or an external storage device connected to another Mac or a 802.11ac AirPort base station. Only 802.11ac base stations support time Machine, not older model.

    Otherwise, use Time Machine at all. There are other ways to save, although none of them are nowhere near as effective or as well integrated with OS X. I don't have a specific recommendation.

    If you are determined to continue to use the device with Time Machine, your only remedy for any resulting problem is the manufacturer (who will blame Apple, neither you nor anyone else but herself.)

  • I'm using Time Machine (1 TB), works very well, but because full starting to delete previous backups. Can I add another (LaCie 1 TB) HARD disk for backups? If so, how to proceed. Thank you!

    I'm using Time Machine (1 TB), works very well, but because full starting to delete previous backups. Can I add another (LaCie 1 TB) HARD disk for backups? If so, how to proceed. Thank you!

    You can add another drive to accept backups Time Machine... assuming it is correctly formatted for Mac to Mac OS extended (journaled), but things are not exactly "continue."

    You have not indicated if you intend to add the player to the USB port on the Time Capsule, or connect directly to your computer using USB or FireWire connections. Or the other method works, with the option to connect directly to the computer being the faster connection.

    Once the disc is added, you would go in Time Machine preferences (click the "clock" at the top of the screen on your Mac) to add the disk for Time Machine backups and delete the old Time Capsule disk, since backups will go is no longer this destination.

    Since you have a new drive, Time Machine will do a new full backup of your Mac and then go forward with incremental backups.

    What is NTFS?

    What type of disc to I use to make a backup?

    Hi Heather_604,

    There are two ways you can do: you can convert the external hard drive to NTFS, or you can format the external hard drive to NTFS.

    Personally, I suggest that you format the external hard drive, but this will remove all data from the drive. Temporarily, you can copy what is on the hard drive on your C: drive if you have enough free space (or DVD) - once the external hard drive is formatted NTFS, you can copy everything back.

  • Is there a way to backup the catalog only not listed in the catalog? "CATALOGUE START WITH" generates double entry.

    The version of DB is 11.1.0.7.

    The 'CATALOGUE START WITH' not only added the backup set that are not in the RMAN catalog, but also added a second copy of files that are already in the catalog.
    The files are not a second copy; they are the same file in the same directory.

    Having two copies of the catalogue, by mistake when you explicitly delete the backups.
    We must add the force clause to avoid the error.
    RMAN > delete backup FORCE tag "off site-1';

    The clause of power ignores any IO error.
    The removal is part of our regular off-site backup script, which returns a false positive error when the clause is omitted.
    I don't want the clause, in order to be informed if the backup set that are supposed to be on the disk is not here, for example, if someone had removed the files manually at the level of the BONE without using rman.

    Is there a way to backup the catalog only not listed in the catalog?
    or maybe delete the copy entry #2 of the catalog?

    Find below an example test scenario:

    Here you can see the database says 'Unknown files to the Database list' and then asks to added above files. These files are of no use to the RMAN. So I went no.. But the backup in the directory file is cataloged twice already, but watch copy 1 when asked of RMAN. Probably, it might be a bug and it is advised to increase SR with oracle to resolve the problem.

  • Time Machine wants to finish the backup

    I recently had a repair on my MacBook Pro.  They replaced the Logic Board 2.5 GHz.  Time Machine now wants to do a full backup instead of only since my last backup.  Should I just let a backup completes or is there a way to backup only since the last of them?  Will allowing him to make a full backup take too much space on my external hard drive?  The drive is fairly new and I know that there is enough space (for now.)  Apple advice for troubleshooting time Machine said to call the repair center, but I thought someone here might be able to help.  Thank you.

    This is quite normal. Time Machine it's an another computer because the new logic board. So, you have to make a new backup. If you have no space on the backup drive, then erase the disc first.

  • Migration of Time Machine to the new drive, backups are larger than the Original drive

    I am currently migrating my Time Machine backups from a 2 TB WD My Passport for Mac to a new WD 6 to my book for Mac. I have 63 backups on the old disk, and Finder says that the reader has TB filled 1.96.

    However, each individual backup is about 350 GB, which certainly does not. I think normally it was something weird with the Finder listing the wrong sizes, except that when I copy the backups to the new disk, they copy effectively to 350GB a piece. I initially tried to copy everything the ~ 2 TB Backups.backupdb at once, but it was so great, she didn't, then I copy on each both a backup in a folder that I had planned to rename "Backups.backupdb" at the end. At this rate, I will fill new TB cases 6 drive long before copying all backups on.

    How is that possible?

    Just to be complete, I'm using a Macbook Pro of the retina 2012, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 graphics card Intel HD 4000 1536 MB, 512 GB of storage, under OS X 10.11.3.

    Time Machine saves the previous backups for the continuous backup size to become more wider until there is no more space on the backup drive. It is quite normal because Time Machine is an archive backup utility.

  • Recovering data from a Time Machine to an external drive backup

    How to recover data from a backup Time Machine to an external drive?

    I use Time Machine to back up data (photos, videos) on an external drive (drive A) to another external drive (drive/B) separate that I use for Time Machine backups. After performing a backup, the external drive (drive A) appears in TimeMachine and can I recover files that are on the external drive (A) just as I can for the files that are found on the internal hard drive.

    I need to know what to do if I drop my external drive (drive A) completely and you want to recover the Time Machine backup on a new replacement drive?  When I disconnect my external drive (A) and enter the Time Machine, I don't find a way to access the files to recover.  Still... I know they are there!
