I have a western digital 2TB hard disk (wd caviar green) connected through a unitek sata hdd docking station with my macbook air (10.8.2).

When I try to backup with time machine, the backup fails with an error. I went into console.app and got following log entrys for backupd

What is the reason for this backup failure and how do I resolve the problem?

  • I am having the same error. (Backup failed with error: 11). I am using an external non-Apple-brand USB drive attached to an apple AirPort wireless router I wonder if there's an error between the USB drive and your computer, because I'm going to change out my USB drive and see what that does. – Warren P Jan 22 '13 at 13:58

I fix my problem after trying and searching for 3 hours... the solution that work for me : Select le source disk->get info->sharing and permission and make sure sportlight, admin, and (me) are READ+WRITE, unlock, and apply to all enclosing....

after some time (applying to enclosing) restart... and the time machine backup will work :-)
