Time machine stopped working
« on: January 08, 2019, 12:13:31 pm »
For some reason Time machine to my LS220DE604 has stopped working in the past few days.

I can see the NAS, I can click on the backups folder and see the sparsebundle.  (Should it say sparse bundle?) When I click on time machine prefs. and click on back up now it says preparing back up and then stops.   

Any ideas?

Is it possible the unit is full? Not a mac expert I'm afraid.
