Help With Time Machine!!! "preparing back up" for 30 minutes now
im using an external G-drive to backup my files...
the first time i did it with the drive i dont remember there being any problem whatsoever..
(i dont always keeps it plugged into my computer)
anyway im now trying to perform another back up i coonnected it to my computer and time machine automatically read it and started "preparing back up"
when i check on the status bar on the upper rigth hand corner of my screeen it stil says "preparing back up" its not actually backing up anything i dont understand what im doing wrong?
You're not doing anything wrong .....
Sometimes it takes a long time " preparing " and " finishing backup "
Just let Time Machine do the job and be patient would be my suggestion.
I had some issues like that with old external drive, it turns out it had some errors and it died a few weeks after. Not sure if this applies to your case, i don't know how old is your drive, but that was my experience.
