    Open the Time Machine preference pane and see if you see a small red circle in the pane. Click there and it should give you an error message about why the backup failed. Post that message here and we can give you some suggestions.

    Got a black (not red) circle. Message : Unable to complete backup. An error occurred while creating the backup folder.

    I have run Utilities>disk repair against the HDD. It found a couple of errors, but reported a successful disk repair. Thanks Sly for the quick reply. -Phil

    Time Machine backups now working normally. The disk repair seems to have done the trick. Lets close this thread. -Phil
