Why can't I get Time Machine to work in macOS Sierra?

Episode 1343 (33:50)

Lance from Los Angeles, CA

Lance upgraded to macOS Sierra and now his Time Machine isn't working. Apple Care hasn't been able to solve the problem either. He's even reinstalled the OS and Time Machine. It just hangs about 2/3 of the way through the backup. Leo says that nobody really likes Time Machine, especially when it doesn't work. No one really knows how it works, either. If Apple can't figure it out, it's a lost cause.

Leo recommends using a more robust backup solution. Leo recommends ChronoSync. or SuperDuper. Both are easier and better to use than Time Machine.
