10.6: Avoid slow and CPU-intensive Time Machine backups
Authored by: JaxMyers on Feb 13, '10 08:33:32AM

Thanks, this worked like a charm for me. After 2 hours of annoying slow backup with lots of hard drive sounds, I force quit finder and it went from 1 kb/second to 23 mb/second (peak). Yay, now I don't have to wait a whole week for my backup to finish!
(I have a lot of data to backup because I just upgraded to Aperture 3 and it basically has to copy my entire upgraded library to the backup drive).
