Update Issue: Time Machine Not Working After Mojave Update

Mac OS Mojave is the most favorite operating system on the Internet because of its fast operating system. It provides unique features such as dark mode, finder, enhancements, stacks, screenshot enhancements, etc. However, some Mac users may encounter issues such as stuck on the login page, hard drive freeze, or a 3rd-party app issue, but the Time Machine not working is the major issue.

If you are the unlucky user facing this issue, don’t worry; we will show you all the simple solutions to fix the time machine not working after the Mojave update in the article below!

Simple Solutions to Fix The Time Machine Not Working after Mojave Update Issue

Solution 1: Configure Time Machine

Many Mac users state they face this issue when they are trying to back up their data with the Time Machine. Therefore, follow the steps below to fix the Time Machine issue:

Step 1: Choose System Preferences from the menu.

Step 2: Choose Time Machine and select the Turn Off option.

Step 3: Proceed to Macintosh HD, then select Library and Preferences.

Step 4: Remove the com.apple.TimeMachine.plist file from the Preferences folder.

Step 5: Select the Time Preferences option and restart the Time Machine again.

Step 6: Save the Time Machine backup on a different external drive and start the backup process.

Remember to follow the steps above carefully to prevent any data loss on the Time Machine!

Solution 2: Terminal Utility

Mac OS Mojave doesn’t support Terminal utility command along with Time Machine. Therefore, when you exclude the $ sudo tmutil listbackups command from Terminal, you will receive the error message: The operation could not be completed because ‘tmutil’ could not access the private application on the backup disk.

So follow the steps below to overcome this error as soon as possible!

Step 1: Choose System Preferences from Menu.

Step 2: Choose the Security & Privacy option.

Step 3: From the Privacy tab, choose Terminal to add to the list of applications that can access the application file.

Note: Both of the solutions above can help to resolve the Time Machine not working after the Mojave update, but it also can cause data loss along the process.
