10.6: Verify Time Machine Backups
Authored by: joekewe on Feb 08, '11 06:08:14PM
From a web search, it looks like "Verify Time Machine Backup" should be called "Verify Time Capsule" backup. My system log shows that I attempted to verify my Time Machine backup:[70595]: Backup verification requested by user.

but (I believe) because it is a locally mounted volume, it didn't do anything and didn't leave any more entries in the log. From this older knowledgeable article, it looks like Verify Time Machine was added when Time Capsule was having trouble.

10.6: Verify Time Machine Backups

Once again, from Finder Help:

If you see a message that you must create a new backup, a problem has occurred that prevents Time Machine from using the existing backup.
