    Ok, I have a MacBook Pro and a Time Capsule, the other day I reinstalled Mac OS X Leopard because I had problems with it. I am trying to restore my info from Time Capsule to my MacBook Pro after installing Leopard but it just says that its restoring from time capsule to volume and has been for about 24 hours! Does anyone know how long it should take? There is around 180GB of data to transfer.

    Hopefully you got this issue resolved before now!

    No, it shouldn't take that long
    You may want to restart and try again ;)

    To reduce the amount of time needed for a restore, connect your computer to one of the LAN ports of the Time Capsule via Ethernet. This avoids having the Time Capsule try to restore 180 GB of information over wireless.

    When I copied 150GB from a HDD to my Macbook it took about 4hrs
