Hi all....

I recently updated to El Capitan.. and up to that moment my Timemachine as something that just worked and I didn't even think about it. I have a Drobo S system... the Drobo Dashboard Control Panel software all works fine under El Capitan... and all reports state that my Timemachine drive is healthy and operating perfect;y.... but I have noticed that the Timemachine feature just doesn't backup automatically at hourly intervals anymore... I'm now manually doing this when I remember to do so... but when I do... all backs up fine. Has anyone had any similar experience after updating to El Capitan.. and did you find any workaround..?

Kind Regards,
Irish MacUser & Mac Addict...

Hi Anto39x,
The same problem happens with many other Mac users who have recently upgraded their Mac to EI Capitan. You need to setup your time Machine as per this new Mac OS and restore your data back. Here, is a good tutorial which resolves your issue.
