Am I the only person on the planet having issues with time machine and time capsule? I gave up on the 2 mac book pros I have and bought external hard drives and I'm backing up to the hard drives using firewire. So far no problems. Now I having problems with the mac mini server I purchased last month. I am connecting to the time capsule via ethernet. I started the initial backup of13.6 gig and 7 gig moved in about 8 minutes and then it slowed and slowed. And came to a stop (or so it appeared). So, I went out today and bought a 3 terabyte external and connected to the Mac Mini via firewire. The backup started, ripped off about 8 gig, has now reached 8.75 gig and has come to a stop. So what am I missing with the mac mini. Something that appears so simple is becoming quite a chore.
