I have updated to 10.12.5 yesterday and I am facing some issues with Time Machine and volumes where the backups are stored. I used to have two Volumes where Time Machine backups are stored:
- network volume
- usb drive
The first problem I faced was that all the backups, either on network or on usb drive, stuck on "preparing backup" state.
I tried these solutions:
- reset Time Machine (removing /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist
- reset SMC and NVRAM
Nothing changed. Except for the fact that, since I reset Time Machine, my Volume with usb backup partition (HDMac) is not mountable anymore. Giving
sudo lsof | grep disk2s2 I understood that system stuck on
fsck_hfs. While backup on network drive is still on "preparing backup".
Can anybody help me?
