I know there are a lot of threads relating to what I'm going to ask but the more I read, the more confused I become. Please offer me some suggestions. I have a MacBook Pro (2007) and a very recently purchased iMac desktop (2013). I'm trying to backup my stuff onto my Time Capsule using Time Machine and it's ridiculously slow. I've tried everything: Plugged in my TC to the router Plugged in my TC to the iMac Wirelessly tried connecting iMac to TC ..and to backup 150 GB the minimum time it stated was 12 days currently my TC is plugged into my iMac and wirelessly accessing my modem and it currently states 148 days for a backup. Is this supposed to be this slow? Any suggestions on making this faster? If it helps for clarification, I have an iPhone 4, iPad (3rd generation), Apple TV, Time Capsule (2nd generation), many other external hard drives. My dad also has a MacBook Pro (2011). Syncing between all these devices with my MacBook Pro and iMac would be nice as well. Please help me out, thanks!
