I have already run Diskutility's verify/repair over the time machine
disk, but it didn't find anything.

I then followed advice to remove an old

/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/nameOfComputer/date.inProgress

file, but the next backup just had the same results.

Any other pointers hoe to fix this?

thanks

It could be a problem on your source disk, not the TM disk. What's its 
SMART Status? (Bear in mind a SMART Status of "OK" isn't very 
conclusive!) Are there any messages relating to your source disk in the 
system.log?

Error -36 is an I/O error. There is either a communication problem or a
physical disk error with either your source drive or your time machine
backup drive. The "SrcErr:YES" implies it is the source drive at fault.

This is very bad. Assuming you weren't running VMware Fusion at the time
of this backup, it probably means there is a bad block on your hard
drive, somewhere inside the VMware Fusion disk image.

Try running a Disk Repair on that drive, in case it is a directory
issue, but this won't detect bad blocks. You need to use something like
TechTool Pro doing a surface scan.

Error -50 is an illegal parameter. It may be a side effect of the
previous error.

No idea what error -8062 is, probably a side effect.

Also don't know what error 11 means (it isn't a standard Mac OS error
code).

I believe David means for you to run the "Repair" function of Disk 
Utility on the HD3 volume.

I am intrigued by the 'to (null)', which sounds like it has forgotten
the target drive?

Done that, 'appears to be OK'. Hmm.

Umm. That sounds like an expensive option. Is there a free tool that can
do that?

Boot from a Linux-based "Rescue CD" and do a non-destructive surface 
scan from there?

Right. It could be that the drive having problems isn't HD3, but the 
target backup drive.

Have you verified that the target backup drive is problem-free as well?

I believe you can do it for free by erasing and reformatting the drive 
in question with Disk Utility.

Probably has a generic error handler which gets passed the source
pathname, destination pathname, error code and a flag for whether the
occurred on the source or destination file.

I expect that (null) reference just meant that it hadn't yet set up the
pathname for writing to the destination file, because the error occurred
early while processing that particular file, e.g. it may read a block of
data from the source file before setting up the name and creating the
destination file.

You can use the 'dd' command line tool in Terminal to read a file and
report errors, including information about their position within the
file.

Try this:

cd "/Volumes/HD3/Virtual Machines/Windows XP Professional.vmwarevm"

dd bs=1m if="Windows XP Professional.vmdk" of=/dev/null conv=noerror

This reads from the file in blocks of 1 megabyte at a time, discarding
the data. If it encounters errors, it will print a message indicating
the offset within the file (to the nearest megabyte) and keep going
until it reaches the end of the file. (42 GB will take a while.)

If you omit the "bs=1m" parameter it will read 512 bytes at a time, but
that would take ages for a huge file.

If it does report any errors, you should also have a look in system.log
to see if any I/O Errors have been logged.

Assuming you do get errors:

It is possible the disk may have a "soft" error - a sector which has
developed a bad CRC but will be fine when rewritten. Even if it has a
"hard" error, a damaged sector should be replaced on write by allocating
a spare sector.

Unfortunately the data currently in the sector is not accessible and is
probably gone for good. This means part of the VMware disk image is
damaged, which may affect something on the system inside the virtual
machine (depending on where the bad sector lies within the file system
on the virtual hard drive).

Tracking this down may be tricky, and would probably require tools in
the guest operating system.

Fixing the problem will at least require ovewriting the bad sector, and
the easiest way to do that is to use 'dd' again to overwrite the damaged
file (or at least the region with the error), which will probably cause
more data loss and should only be done if you want to throw away your
virtual disk (after copying anything you want to keep).


If you want to check the entire hard disk, you could use 'dd' to read
from the appropriate raw device, but it doesn't have any way to
associate a bad sector with a particular file. That's one of the
advantages of using TechTool Pro 5's surface scan - it tells you which
files are affected.

I can supply more details about the use of 'dd' as required.

I am having similar problems:

Error: (-36) SrcErr:YES Copying /Users/craig/Pictures/iPhoto 
Library/Originals/2004/Balloon ride/DCP_1411.JPG to (null)
Error: (-36) SrcErr:YES

but the files(20 of them) that are causing my headaches are photos that 
reside within my iPhoto library.
I am guessing that removing the photos from that directory may resolve 
the problem?

Thoughts, ideas?

Thx.

Craig

Removing something from the iPhoto library will damage the library and 
confuse iPhoto. So you shouldn't do that.

Removing the broken files will also just allow the OS to copy new data 
to those broken bits of the disk, so that doesn't really help either.

So no, that wouldn't really resolve the problem - if this is a disk 
error then you need a new disk which you can restore your last good 
backup to it.

These errors appear to be attributed to the *source* disk, not the Time 
Machine disk. So you'll need to correct the problem on the *source* disk.

First, run Disk Utility to make sure that there is no volume corruption.

Second, delete the files that are no longer readable and restore them 
from Time Machine.

Keep an eye on your Time Machine backups.  What happened is probably a 
manufacturing defect in your disk drive or physical damage.  Sectors 
suffering from normal wear are re-mapped to spares before they become 
unreadable.  There's no way of knowing yet if the drive's problems are 
limited to a few sectors or if more failures are to come.
