    How long should I be stuck on the screen "calculating space required to restore data"? I've been on this screen for about 20, 30 minutes. The "hash mark wheel" is spinning, but just not seeing anything new. Is this normal?

    My backed up data is ~100 GB.

    I did a restore last night- and it did take a while to calculate space of the various items. Make sure you are hard wired into your time machine- and not using wireless. I did not time how long it took my iMac to calculate space- but 20 minutes sounds about right.
