Time machine no longer backs up changes to files in home folder

Time machine no longer backs up changes to files in home folder

My Time Machine seems to be in some sort of weird state where it has stopped backing up any files/folders in my home (~/) folder or below.

"Did you enable FileVault recently? Then your home folder is only being backed up when you log out.

Is your home folder somehow excluded in your Time Machine settings?

Or is it included in the output of the following? (Which it should not)

mdfind ""com_apple_backup_excludeItem = 'com.apple.backupd'""

(And I think you can safely delete the /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist file and re-attach your Time Machine drive after that. But, moving the file to another location might be a safer option.)"
