I can't get Time Machine activated on my mac pro because it hangs while looking for a backup disk. I think it has something to do with my current drive setup, but I don't see why it should hang for so darn long. When it finally compiles a list of disks I can use, it doesn't let me select any of the drives (still hanged). I have a two main volumes. Partition one is a 320gb disk which is the one I want to backup to a network drive. The other partition is a 4-disk RAID 10 array which I've mounted as my custom Home folder. The redundancy from it frees me from having to do Time Machine backups of my Home folder. Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm thinking that if I could somehow access the preferences and exclude my home folder from getting backed via Time Machine I can prevent the crash, but I can't even get to the preferences since I have to select a disk fist. Is there any plist that I might be able to edit?
