    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Erase the Time Machine drive using disk utility. Choose the Zero it out option. (not any of the multiple-pass options, they take FOREVER).

    Then set it up as a Time Machine drive again, and let it back from scratch.

    If this doesn't solve the problem, download the free "TM Error Logger" and have a look at the log to see what's going on. If it's gibberish to you, post a relevant portion here and we'll see if we can help.

    Hi chas,

    I tried doing that, erase completely, backing up, it finished but again it doesn't stop backing up, it's always like

    1 gb of 1 gb"" then after 1 hour "1,2gb of 1,2 gb" now "2,5gb of 2,5gb" and it continues like this!!!

    And the error log is useless because i don't get errors, just infinite backuup without doing a real backup

    can anyone help?

    Did you not read the posts above? Try that first and if it still doesn't work, post the log.
