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:

com.apple.backupd[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, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4076 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.
