I need bit of advise regarding Snow Leopard Upgrade. I recently upgrade mac 10.5 to 10.6 (Snow Leopard), when I do my normal backup using Time Machine, the background is white. I have restarted my Macbook and also read some of the Mac Forums. I've even followed the steps read in one of the post.

If Barry's suggestion doesn't work, try these:

Do a Repair Disk (not permissions) on your TM drive, via Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilities folder).

Re-select your TM drive via TM Preferences > Change Disk.

If you're using Spaces, try disabling it, at least temporarily.

If you have any sort of video out cable, especially HDMI, try disconnecting it, at least temporarily.

Do a "complete reset" of TM, as in item #B3 Time Machine - Troubleshooting User Tip

However that doesn't work either. Could it be a bug or if there's something I should do to bring time machine back to normal? I like the warp !!!! Thank you
QUOTE Thanks
