Fix Time Machine Sparsebundle NAS Based Backup Errors | Garth Gillespie
This is a modification of an original post for use when you have a corrupt sparsebundle backup on a NAS (as opposed to an external drive attached to a router) and it needs to be repaired. The NAS is likely a hardware product from the likes of Netgear, Synology, Buffalo or QNap – or for those of us with a home-grown backup server running FreeNAS.

The error you may see is “Time Machine completed a verification of your backups. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you.” This can be fixed by following the below.

stevegrunwell/asimov: Automatically exclude development dependencies from Apple Time Machine backups
Asimov aims to solve that problem, scanning your filesystem for known dependency directories (e.g. node_modules/ living adjacent to a package.json file) and excluding them from Time Machine backups. After all, why eat up space on your backup drive for something you could easily restore via npm install?

Time Machine Backup Stuck at “Cleaning Up” – Macriot
“If you are still reading this article, you are probably wearing a frown at this point. Not only has Google ‘implanted’ an app into your Mac OS without clearly stating, this same app is also an always-active-daemon, i.e. an app that constantly runs in the background. Checking and communicating with Google servers.

“Its bad enough that this chews up invaluable processor time and power, as well as internet bandwidth, on the Time Machine backup process front, it has been identified as one of the culprits that cause the annoying forever ‘cleaning up’ phase.”
