Checking Very Large Time Machine Volumes
Authored by: fmlogue on Sep 08, '11 01:56:43PM

Thanks for this hint. However a comment and a request for further help.

First, since my Time Machine is on a Partition, I found that I had to use <sudo fsck_hfs -f -c 2200m /dev/disk2s2> (note I added s2 to disk2)

Second, the result was: The volume Time Machine was found corrupt and needs to be repaired.
I believe this is related to the first message put up: "Verifying volume when it is mounted with write access.
Journal need to be replayed but volume is read-only"

Is the volume in need of repair or is that only an artifact of it being read-only?
And how do I allow fsck_hfs write access?

TIA

Likely it needs repair. Mine checks okay when read-only.

Unmount the volume before checking it.
