macOS Catalina

Time machine stuck in preparing OSX Catalina


since updating to Catalina I’m having time machine issues.

im using a WD Mycloud and have been doing a lot of tidying up on it recently as I’m going to change my NAS.

time machine is getting stuck in preparing backup.

i have tried the following:

  • disconnecting the device restarting Mac and reconnecting
  • moving time machine backup folder in the privacy setting in spotlight
  • removibg the device from tine machine and deselecting the disk

i have also had the error backup in use

and tine machine failed backup

another issue I now have is that in tine machine the oldest backup is showing as none..why is this? And is the reason preparing backup taking so long because it thinks this is the first backup?
