    Hello all,
    I recently bought a 1TB WD Hard drive and begun to backup my mac. When I first begun the backup, it was moving at a steady pace. However, once I got to 28.59GB out of 435.17GB, it started to not move. I know the initial backup takes time, but does it really take THIS long? It's been like this for a long time already, and I was wondering if this is normal, or if I should do something to fix it. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    The issues you are having may be related with some software like Anti Virus. Disable it and try to do the first Time Machine backup. You are right, that it may take a bit longer. I advise you to visit the thread below, where you may find some useful tips, regarding Time Machine backups.

    Hope this helps
