    Hi friends,,

    I'm taking back up with TimeMachine. it is first back-up, so it takes pretty long. for my case it takes around 16hours :/ , I go to work with laptop and come back, so no way for me to keep backup on sooo long one go. I cant see Pause action for first backup. there is only Stop which kills the backup process! isnt there really such pause action for first back up. I could pause and continue later.

    Thanks for help.

    TM should be set up only when you have the time to leave it for the first backup. It needs an uninterrupted backup. You could simply shut the computer down to force it to end but there is no pause during a backup.
