    Ok so time machine was backing up, i plugged in my logitech keyboard into my macbook, which caused it to kernel panic (hate logitech). So restarted my macbook and manually invoked a backup on time machine. Get an error message saying that time machine needs 137625GB of space and that my External HD volume is too small for that backup. I've attached a screenshot of this in case you think i'm lying!! What am i supposed to do now?? This is so bizarre!!

    No help here, but this sounds like what has happened in Tiger to some people with FileVault. Maybe it'd help to look that up?

    137 terrabytes of pr0n. Wow. ;) Reminds me of XP telling me it's got tens of millions of seconds left during file copying.
