    First Backup completed, successfully after deleting the App Cleaner file/s. So we've made progress, All the reason for HAVING to resolve this is because I don't have a current backup, why I've made this a critical task to resolve. UI've learned previously the value of TM.

    Will have a look at it, but the last error logs pointed finger at the offending Library sub folder where there was left over bits of App Cleaner, I removed that and the CCC task completed successfully. Will do one or 2 more today and then retry TM tonight.

    Hmmmm, Cant actually recall. Looking at my emails I have invoice from Apple Store for it so going assume it was directly from the App store and not directly from vendor.

    Whats the difference you refer to?

    Nope, it was normally just a "Erase" tasks via Disk Utility, but I've also tried this on another HDD and had the same problem so don't believe it is target based. Seems to have been one of those app Cleaner files.

    Can I ask did you reformat your external HD when you erased it? Sometimes reformatting to say ExFat then back to Macintosh OS Extended (Journalled) can help to completely erase the hidden files on an external drive.

    They’re not the same vendor. I’ve been using the original, since before the macOS App Store was around. I tried the App Store version, thinking it was the same vendor, but I had issues with it.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Can confirm after doing the CCC and then deleting the left over files from App Cleaner TM now completed successfully.

    Now I can look at the Mojave upgrade

    thanks all for assisting.

    FWIW: Same here.

    And congrats to georgelza on their success.

    You might want to let Apple's App Store folks know about your problem, and it's too bad it can't delete itself and all its bit and pieces.

    Try some of the apple.ca contacts listed on their web page. Their App Store may also have a report area you could use.

    ... Response from SW vendor:

    Yes, Time Machine on some systems can not create backup for our app service folder.
    That's a known bug, we created a patch and sent to Apple for review.

    We have renamed the folders, and sent the update to the App Store.
    Now, App Cleaner v.6.2 is being on review by Apple, I hope they will approve and release it in a few days.

    To resolve the issue now, just add the service folder to Time Machine exclude list, or just remove the folder.
    There is a detailed guide how to do that.
