OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Back Up Takes Ages?

Feb 21, 2012

I got a PowerMac 2.66 GHz Quad Core Intel Xenon with a 640GB HD. The system is 10.6.8. For some reason the Time Machine back up takes ages since a few weeks. I deleteted allready a few older ones and the free space on the back up disk is about 122GB. Today it copied about 700MB and it took over 30 minutes. I'm preatty sure this was a lot faster before. get it quicker again or what can be a reason that it is so slow.

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Time Machine Only Does The Initial Back-up?

May 17, 2010

I have an external HDD hooked up to my iMac. It's from Freecom, and I believe it contains a Seagate ST310005 disk. I formatted the disk, and set up Time Machine. It seems to go well, TM makes the first back-up without any problems. But, even though TM is turned on and set to back things up, nothing I put on my PC after the initial back-up gets backed up. I put a folder on my desktop, put some files in it, and they are nowhere to be found in the TM back-ups.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Will Not Back Up One Of Two Computers

Mar 14, 2012

I am using time machine to back up to a time capsule, two different macs (a laptop & a desktop).  The time casule is connected to the network & the desktop backs up fine.  The laptop did as well up until a few months ago, now the laptop fails each attempt to back up. 

The problem may be temporary. Try again later to back up. If the problem persists, use Disk Utility to repair your backup disk.  

Latest successful backup: 11/16/11 at 10:24 PM 

I have tried to repair the laptop backup volume with no change.  I do not really want to reformat the entire disk as it is working fine with the desktop.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Takes Ages Before EFI/rEFIt Comes On?

Jul 25, 2010

I have partitioned the harddrive on my Macbook Pro, one partition for OS X and one for Ubuntu, and then i use rEFIt to choose between the two. But some time in performing this process, the time between you turn on the mac, until the EFI(or now, rEFIt) is on, takes up til 15 seconds now. Before, it was about instant.

This is a huge problem for me, but I havent found any way to fix it.
Any ideas?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: When Opening A Folder, It Takes Ages To Show The Files

Feb 27, 2012

I have a 2012 Macbook Pro running Lion (as you can probably guess!), with a 512Gb SSD and 8Gb Ram. Its a pretty fast machine and i'm really happy with the way it runs, however when I open a folder to view files, it opens and shows a blank folder and then I get the black pinwheel in the bottom left/right hand side and I have to wait for sometimes over 30 seconds before the files in that folder are shown!? 

One thing to point out is that it doesn't always happen and its not restricted to particular folders. I can open a folder and it will show the files straight away, however I can re-open that folder and it will take up to 30 seconds to show the files... 

I've tried rebooting and running nothing, but it still happens. And I have also tried the normal disk utilities to check permissions, etc and I think these are fine too..

Safari :: It Takes AGES To Load Pages And Play Videos

Jun 8, 2012

Safari takes AGES to load pages and play videos!!! It takes 40 seconds to load the page the first time Safari is open (quit and open Safari or open after Mac reboot or cold boot) and 20 seconds to reload pages afterwards. Frustrating!!!

Firefox takes about 2 seconds, Chrome takes one second and Opera is real time. Latest versions of all in Mac OS X 10.6.8.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Any Way To Back Up In Real Time To An External (AppleScript)?

Jun 29, 2012

I can't risk data storage in the clouds due to the possibility (however remote) that someone's personal info might get compromised. Nor can I risk the cloud being down and not being able to access files/date when needed (which can sometimes be at the strangest of times).I have several iMacs integrated wirelessly. Every time we (I) update a doc, it needs to be manually transferred to other computers for staff who will need it. That's no big deal. What is worrisome is if a recent version of a doc were to get corrupted due to a HD failure, a corruption on an iMac, or whatever else.  We all have TM and Super Duper clones that are scheduled regularly.What I'd like to be able to do is simultaneously have docs backed up on an external in real time, as they are saved on an internal.Unless I'm missing something I can't find, it seems the only way to do this is to save to the HD, and then save to an external. That seems like a lot of manual redundancy, and invites forgetfulness.So all being said, is there an Apple Script out there anyone is aware of that would tell the iMac to automatically save a copy of every file that is modified to an external, so that the external is a "current" version of the internal for data retrieval purposes?

OS X :: How To Backup For Snow Leopard With Time Machine

Apr 19, 2009

possible to back up all your data with Time Machine on Leopard and then install Snow Leopard and use Time Machine to restore all of your pictures/movies/music and the like?

I'm going to assume it's a no go since Time Machine is capable of a full system backup -- it may just turn your system back into Leopard?

OS X :: Time Machine And Snow Leopard Restore?

Jun 14, 2009

I am a little new to Time Machine, so I was wondering if anyone could answer this? I am currently using Time Machine to backup my Mac. I am running Leopard and I want to move to Snow Leopard when it comes out. When i get Snow Leopard, I will perform a reformat on my hard drive so its a nice fresh install. My question is what options will I get when I get when I go to install it as I have Time Machine? I'll be honest and say I'll be happy to just copy across my iTunes, iPhoto, contacts and calender over to Snow Leopard and not worry about anything else (stuff like downloading Firefox takes seconds and isn't a problem). Is this an option? Can i just install Snow Leopard totally fresh, then connect the Time Machine drive and copy the iTunes (etc etc) folders/files/docments over to my fresh install?

OS X :: Time Machine In Snow Leopard Slow

Sep 8, 2009

I just tried and everything seems non-responsive or on a 2 minute delay. I use Time Capsule and Time Machine and things are just not acceptable at this speed.

Also, I don't think the archives are right. I used to have a ton of things on my desktop - most of which I cleaned recently by moving or deleting the files.

However, going back a few months in Time Machine, the only files that show up in my desktop folder/view are the ones that are on my desktop today. All the older, moved or deleted files no longer show up in Time Machine.

OS X :: Cannot Backup To Time Machine With Snow Leopard

Feb 18, 2010

I have a Apple Time Capsule which is used as a Time Machine Backup Facility and also a Wireless Hub for File Sharing and Internet Connection. I've been using Leopard for a couple of years without any significant problems. The other day, I installed Snow Leopard and suddenly, I'm facing a number of different problems and errors regarding backups to the Time Machine with the Time Capsule.

First, I was facing problems with a Case Sensitive error and now that I have ejected the Time Capsule, the Disk Utility has come up with a different name altogether and now I have the added problem of disk space on the time capsule. I know I could re-format and start over but that would defeat the whole point of my backups. The Time Machine/Capsule should re-write over the old backups when making space for new ones but its just giving me an error about not enough disk space.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Error 11 With 10.6.8?

Apr 25, 2012

I finally upgraded to Snow Leopard. I have some older software and everything was working fine, so I delayed. I have an Intel 2 x 2.66 Dual Core. Now, I keep getting an error whenever I try to run Time Machine. So far, this is what I have done: Used disk Utility, Disk Warrior, then disk utility again (erased back up drive), then downloaded and reinstalled using the 10.6.8 combo update. Disk Utility again. Tried to backup and got the same error: The backup was not performed because an error occurred while copying files to the backup disk.  

After reading online I downloaded and installed backup buddy (I think) Anyway, this is the error that it gives: Starting standard backup?Backing up to: /Volumes/Backup/Backups.backupdb?Backup content size: 91.4 GB excluded items size: 65.6 MB for volume Knight/Freelance?No pre-backup thinning needed: 109.60 GB requested (including padding), 364.91 GB available

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Backups Not Available In Time Machine

May 18, 2012

The only way I can see my backups in Time Machine is by using the "option" key and selecting "browse other time macnine disks.  However, there is only one Time Machine disk, only one backup appears in the list, there is only one backup directory on the Drobo where I put the backup and I can't find a backup directory anywhere else. HOw do I reset Time Machine so that it defaults to the "other" backup?
