When Time Machine backs up to a NAS, it will often get corrupted and prompt a message saying, “Time Machine completed a verification of your backups. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.”

This script fixes that issue so that Time Machine can continue using the existing backup.


  1. First mount the backup drive share so that the sparcebundle is accessible.
  2. Make sure the script has execute permissions: chmod +x fix_time_machine.sh
  3. Run the script: Usage - fix_time_machine.sh /Volumes/[BackupDrive]/[SparceBundle].sparsebundle/


It is based off a guide written by Garth Gillespie at http://www.garth.org/archives/2011,08,27,169,fix-time-machine-sparsebundle-nas-based-backup-errors.html It is also a modified version of http://pastebin.com/iw5nYFb0 - credit goes to anon.
