    Time Machine Error
    Suddenly Time Machine is giving me error message. It has been working fine running on my wired network to a Western Digital My Book connected to an Airport Extreme. The Drive has 366 gig free, I can connect and write to it over the network. I'm using a Mac Mini, 4 gig Ram OS X 10.5.7
    Being new to Mac I'm not sure where to look for the problem. I've shut down and restarted the Airport and My Book Drive. Will try the Mini after posting

    while moving files around, during a reorganization of my iMac and 5 external hard drives the TM got really messed up and "ran out of room" and stopped backing up ANYTHING. i just reformated it started over. risky for the time it takes to do the first backup but i had no choice.
