It was having a difficult time removing older incremental backups. All Time Machine activity is logged under the process name of "backupd", so searching for that will pull up all the relevant logs. In reviewing the current System Log (/var/log/system.log) I found entries that indicated one of my Growl plugins had a problem being written to the backup. I have a 1TB airport Timecapsule. his comment is here
No worries. but I missed a File: /user/library/preference/com.timeSoftware.timeMachineEditorI opened that file using "Pref Setter"and found that the "startinterval" was set to 14400. I did several things other forums suggested. I only recently noticed that the middle of the TM icon changes to a lock after the unsuccessful run; it changes back to the clock hands after a successful run.
I tried 3 times with Carbon Copy Cloner but it failed everytime. Run Disk Utility on it and see if something obvious comes up. Scan through that and see if a particular file is hanging up your backup. iPhoto was one of most raved applications when Apple still did the iLife suite.

These tips were all great and I finally got to the bottom of my problem. Hopefully this helps other people with the same problem. Formatted the drive twice already and backup attempted 3 times to no avail... I have Tech Tools Pro and I ran a "File Structure" test on both the Time Machine Drive and my Mac HD drive that is being backed up by Time Machine.

Turning off TM and rebooting didn't work :( will try the Terminal option! http://mmonoplayer.com/synology-error/synology-server-error-38.html Turn on iCloud Photo Library and you may still see the occasional low storage warning, but Photos will respond in the background by removing full images and videos stored in iCloud You could wipe the backup disk and start "fresh" ? Synology: Time Backup on DiskStation has failed.

So the crazy set-up is a 320GB OWC 800-firewire (used with SuperDuper!), a 640GB WD (for all data files, apps stay on the internal HD) and a 2TB WD for Time On the topic of backups, I've a piece of software and a service to recommend. Thanks Apple.
What's worse is he was relying on the app's Optimize Mac Storage setting to fit the library on his local storage and trusting iCloud not to screw things up along the way.

I do agree with others on here that the Photos app is sometimes sticky. theres a new error..
But considering upload speeds at home (in <10Mbit ranges) makes the setup a burden as soon as you have something in the order of a GB or more. Why? I felt that was a little drastic so I looked into the Backup drive in Finder and saw that the last folder was:2008-05-30-064104.inProgressI dragged that folder into the Trash can and http://mmonoplayer.com/synology-error/synology-error-page.html and end IP ..1.253, subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and leased time 4 hours –Graffl May 13 '14 at 9:00 Do you experience problem when using the Synology web interface? –David

The Mac is always on and regularly syncs and downloads my iCloud Photo Library to Photos even when the app is closed. If so, check to ensure you are logged in as an admin on the machine.This doesn't sound so much as a Time Machine error as something wrong w/ either your drive
