Hello Catherine,

Perhaps TimeMachine had not actually fully finished when you tried to typeset a document?  

I sometimes find that the icon has changed back to normal, but if you click on it, then it still can say `Cleaning up … ’.
This affects me mostly when I want to disconnect the backup disk, before taking the laptop from home to Uni.

All the best.

Before I start messing within anything on the computer or backup drive, I'd like to figure out what's happening so I don't inadvertently do any more damage. Making a time machine backup shouldn't mess with my TexShop applications unless something is corrupted.
