10.6: Avoid slow and CPU-intensive Time Machine backups
Authored by: ptrondsen on Feb 03, '10 12:33:30PM

Most likely the FInder is latched onto something, causing the backup to go slowly.
Quitting the Finder will release the files the Finder has open.

You can test this by performing the following command before you quit the Finder:

lsof | grep Finder

Then quit the Finder and run the command again.
