I've decided to remove my sparsebundles off my time capsule, do have a fresh backup, since i ran out of diskspace on my time capsule (i thought time machine automatically removed older backups once the remaining diskspace was getting low?). I've first done the backup of 700gb from my iMac via ethernet and reached transfer speeds of approx 20mbps. However, after finishing the iMac backup, i started the 160gb backup of my Mac Book Pro (Retina) also via ethernet. But, now i only reach 2kbps maximum. Activity Monitor (network) shows a very spikey graph that goes from 0kbps to 2 kbps. I cannot explain the huge difference in backup speeds between the two computers. The backup of my 160gb is expected to take 1.040 days!? Can anybody tell me what can be the reason for this?
