    Hey guys,

    I hope someone will be able to help me with this one. I am trying to restore a 09' 13" Mac Book from the latest backup of a 04' 15" Powerbook G4. I have restored the Mac Book and no it is searching the Harddrive for "whatever it is searching for" and well... It is taking an extremely long time. I started around 10:30 PM today and now it is 12. I was just wondering if this is normal or if there is something wrong. That way I have it configured to back up is. Mac Book>Ethernet Cable>Airport Extreme>Time Machine Hard Drive. Any responses or comments will be greatly appreciated.

    It does tend to take a little while... check back in the morning. Unless there's a warning sign, it's just working.
