Re: First Aid Failed.

I think that this is an appropriate thread to mention that problems with Time Machine backups are rather common. . .  Accordingly, I do not rely on it for local backups.  I have other backups made using more reliable software as well as a Cloud backup should disaster hit.  (My area recently experienced a disastrous wildfire which stopped burning around a mile from my home.  The last things that went into my Go Bag was my Mac Mini and external drives.  But sometimes there isn't enough time for such things. . .)

Assuming the OP still has the original data, starting over is the easiest route to take.  But I would check the health of the Time Machine drive before relying on it Just In Case.  DriveDX  is a utility I can recommend but it cannot fix problems that it finds.
