Time Machine completed a verification of your backups on “MyBackupDrive”. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.

What does this mean and why did it happen?

IS your MyBackupDrive on a NAS? –  Nifle Sep 1 '12 at 4:18
    
    
@Nifle - It is on a NAS and it's been working that way for a few months now. –  1.21 gigawatts Sep 1 '12 at 6:56
    
Seems to be some sort of bug when using Time Machine + NAS. If you google To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you. you get quite a few hits. I skimmed a few of them but none seems to have a definite solution. So I'm declining to provide any links or answers. –  Nifle Sep 1 '12 at 7:02
