Time Machine Backup extremely slow
Posted on 2011-10-01
I recently experienced a hard drive failure on my iMac, and once I actually figured that out and replaced the drive I was happily back on my way with a complete Time Machine restore.
However, I have noticed my iMac has suffered slow Time Machine backups. Typically it takes over 6 hours to complete a differential backup and thats without hardly any changes.
I have tried wiping the Time Machine drive, but I am starting to worry I will have no choice but to do a clean install which completely defeats the purpose of the restore.
Any have suggestions?
