    I am trying to transfer my time machine backup to another external drive but it gets stuck at 32 gigs. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how do I fix it?

    If you're trying to move the actual backup, try Carbon Copy Cloner. I think I've used it successfully to move those backups before (the problem is that even the Finder doesn't really quite understand hard links properly, so it tries to move files multiple times).
