2TB AirPort Time Capsule recently stopped backing up files and gave this message:
"Time Machine completed a verification of your backups on “Airport Time Capsule”. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you. Click Start New Backup to create a new backup. This will remove your existing backup history. This could take several hours. Click Back Up Later to be reminded tomorrow.”
Unless I missed it, a Google search turned up no solution to this other than apparently accepting the loss of the entire backup history (in this case 4+ years) and starting over. Is anyone aware of a way this can be fixed and the backups recovered, even if on the same Time Capsule? All the backups are still on this Time Capsule as Time Machine preferences shows “613 GB of 2 TB available”.
The Mac Pro is standalone and backs up to the Time Capsule wirelessly. It’s running 10.11.6 and can’t go past El Capitan. Fortunately since earlier this year it’s also been backed up to Backblaze.
