10.5: How to abort a stuck Time Machine backup
Authored by: bruinslacker on Dec 03, '09 11:30:40PM

Myt backup was stuck on "calculating changes" for several hours. Stopping and starting the metadata program worked for me. I got an error in terminal when I used the commands posted above.

"service: This command still works, but it is deprecated. Please use launchctl(8) instead."

I suppose this is the new command that is preferred in Snow Leopard. Just FYI. Thanks for the tip!
