10.5: Safer sleep during networked Time Machine backups
Authored by: hamarkus on Dec 01, '08 02:31:43PM

Where do have to insert these two lines in the script? Anywhere, except inside some already existing loop?

And this is a real problem. Maybe other people are more patient than I am. I had severe problems multiple times with my TC, essentially it remains stuck in 'Preparing' forever or finally even fails to mount. At one moment a recreation of the Spotlight index on the TC solved it, another time DiskWarrior took two days fixing the mounted image. At last even DiskWarrior gave up (after gobbling up 3 GB of RAM). Apple gave me a new TC (but they were not authorized to open the TC to see whether the drive would still mount in Firewire enclosure, essentially I lost my nine month old archive). Now the new TC again got stuck after I mounted the TM backup and then disconnected the TC.
