    Ok, not sure what is going on but time machine keeps running after backing up. Then I have issues where it fills up and I get this error

    Currently am doing a DVD to MP4 conversion but its all being done on folders to not back up by time machine. I have only my work, photos, User (excluding Parallels) and systems folders as back up everything else is excluded.

    If anyone know any cause to this.

    Update:

    Now TM just backs ups and when saying # of #GB backing up it increase soo it goes from

    8gb of 8gb to 30gb of 30gb, i am just letting it run all the way.

    I know its not backing up the whole computer since I assign directories not to back up.

    I looked everywhere I read in Apple forums with same problems but all I got was redo indexing which did not work.

    kitki,

    It is indeed often spotlight issues which are the root cause of TM problems.

    Can you fire up terminal and execute the command

    sudo mdutil -s -a

    while TM is backing up and report back what it says?

    Also, can you fire up console, and tell us what messages are coming from backupd while you are backing up? (you need to select "all messages" in the Console window to see these)
