I hate TimeMachine. Love it in theory, but hate it in practice. My latest woe? I've got a brand new SSD boot drive. I'm backing up from my primary Data RAID to to a very new backup RAID. I killed my TM preferences and reformatted the backup volume. It took a day to backup my 4 gigs of stuff...and already it's back to hellish performance.... It will stall for hours at a time. Spinning...Spinning.... Did I mention I ran disk utility and disk warrior on all my drives before my latest effort? Anyone relate?
