10.6: Avoid slow and CPU-intensive Time Machine backups
Authored by: tnmacguy on May 29, '10 07:30:02PM

I was experiencing the same problem. TM was just CRAWLING. 500 meg in 4 hours!

Tried restarting the Finder, but that didn't seem to really solve the problem.

Relied on using Path Finder by CocoaTech, and excellent Finder alternative - in it, you can choose to turn the Finder off!

Did that, and have backed up 2 gigs in a few minutes.

Thanks for the info!
