Time machine problem. Big
Dec 1, 2012

I just got this message from Time Machine saying it couldn't perform the task as the new copy was too big for the assigned disk. It was attempting to make a copy of over 800 Gb. I clicked accepted. The Time Machine panel said that the last copy failed.

I proceeded to enter Time Machine and found out all my copies were gone, with the exception of one made 24 hours ago.

My Time Capsule is exactly 1Gb the same as my iMac's HD. Everything was set 2 years ago under factory preferences and backing every hour since then. Now and then, the system would alert me that some (old) copies were deleted, which is normal. but nothing like this.

I just checked under the TM panel and it says Time Capsule is in order and with a Green dot (ok).

I don't know what happened. I don't know what to do. Please help.
