About once a month, I get the following message for my time machine backup:
Time Machine completed a verification of your backups. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.
I'm guessing that this is because my backup was corrupted and needs to be redone. This is annoying for 2 reasons:
- I loose all of my old backups.
- It takes several hours to recreate the backup.
I have 2 questions:
- Is this common behavior for everyone using time machine?
- How can I avoid this?
Could it be the case that closing your laptop during a backup will cause corruption?
