    I recently purchased a lacie 320gb external hard drive from my local apple retail store. Once i got home i configured it to work with time machine, it worked great the first time but then i reinstalled leopard and now when i try to back my macbook it takes ten minutes or more (still waiting) just to prepare the back-up.

    is this normal (didn't take this long before the reinstall) ?

    if not what do i do?

    i am hesitant to do another reinstall but will if it is needed.

    thanks in advance

    how many changes have you made on your computer in between backups? from my understanding if it can take a little while to back up lots of information
