Drive is not working

Postby babsy026 » May 22nd, '14, 05:53

I started using my G Drive mobile USB on 12/1/2012 and it backed up my computer once every week.

Yesterday (5/21/2014) when I installed the new OS X Mavericks system, my computer told me that the G drive had failed on 2/8/2014. I ran the disk repair program and verified the drive which said it was ok.

Today I looked at the drive’s records. After 1/10/2014, it started backing up every day, and on 2/7/2014 there were 8 back-ups! There is a back-up folder for 2/8/2014 but this is the back-up that my computer said had failed.

After that folder there is a file (a sheet of paper with top right hand corner curled forward) that says 5/21/2014 (yesterday) inProgress although the drive is not spinning.
Then there is a folder entitled “Latest”.

How do I get the drive which tested ok to start working again?

Hi babsy026,

Thanks for posting. So for clarity, the drive mounts (appears on desktop or in finder) but time machine is unable to complete a backup?
