    Check the partition of Time machine drive, there may be less free space available.

    I recommend you to run the following command in Terminal. This command will let you view your system log - where Time Machine errors are located.
    You will get get a clearer picture of what is causing your backups to fail.
    sudo grep backupd /var/log/system.log

    Let me know.
