    My iMac, early 2008, has 121.49 GB of data to be backed up.
    I started a full back up in Time Machine, about five hours ago... It has been sitting in "Less than a minute remaining" for about two hours. At 110.06 GB done.
    What do I do?

    I needed to do some Safari work and could do it with no problem.
    But my backup is still not done.

    Your help is appreciated.

    I had that once or twice.

    When it's "frozen" like that just quit TM.

    After a re-boot start it again, mine then continued passed the point where it
    was frozen, had to do that three times but ended up with a good TM

    BTW - using CCC or Super Douper for cloning is WAY better INHO.
