10.6: Avoid slow and CPU-intensive Time Machine backups
Authored by: Mrchhas on Feb 03, '10 09:53:45AM

I just tried this, using activity monitor to soft quit finder (not force quit) and then restarted it. I immediately saw my backup rate go on average from about 200 KB/s to 6 MB/s. So pretty neat trick! I wish I knew why it worked...
