    Backup Encountered problem with new Time Machine hard disk

    Just got a new Hard disk for keeping it as the Time Machine backup but now facing error with it which says “Backup encountered problem”. What is the reason for this error? Anyone else came across this error before? Kindly give me the information which need to be resolved for the same? Thanks.

    Hello Friend

    1)First of all select the "Application' folder then "utilities:" then open the Activity monitor.

    2)Now select the 'disk usage tab'.

    3)Now plug the hard drive into your computer.

    4)Now you will need to format your new hard drive.

    5)After that the hard drive is plug in and formatted we need to turn on Time machine.

    6)Go to system preferences then select the Time machine.

    7)Now in the Time machine click the "select disk" and select the hard drive from the list.

    8)You will click the "use for backup".

    9)And finally slide the time machine slider to "on".

    10)Now the time machine will automatically backup your machine every hour.
