    So it started out backing up 0KB of 2GB. When it reached 2GB, it just kept increasing.

    eg.

    2GB of 2GB
    2.1GB of 2.1GB

    etc. until now it is 4.8GB and still increasing.

    Any help?

    Are you downloading big files? Do you use EyeTV and watch something right now?

    From the time of the last backup, I only downloaded some small files (e.g. less than like 500MB)

    Console shows:

    Code:
    5/20/09 7:08:40 PM /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1033] No pre-backup thinning needed: 1.25 GB requested (including padding), 321.52 GB available 
    its now at 5.9 GB lol.

    edit//6.3GB now.
    edit//restarted backup, now it is 0KB 861.1MB, I will update on whether the problem still occurs
    edit//went up to 861.3MB but seems to stop after that. thanks for the help anyway :)
