I had just installed new SSD on main bay and move HDD instead of SuperDrive on my 2011 MBP. All works perfectly but Time Machine. It freezes entire mac when I trying open Options on Time machine preferences pane. I already removed old time machine config but its doesnt help me..

Any suggestions? Thank you.

UPD: also it freezes on iTunes launch... Maybe its cuz of symlinks beetween HDD and SSD? I will try and reply soon.

UPD2: no it is not a symbolic links.

Run Disk Utility and do a full disk scan. You might have bad sectors. – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Nov 20 '12 at 17:42

So its solved by wait until freeze over - its about an 20 mins. I do not know what exactly it was but now its works as should. If you have the same issue try to wait about an hour - maybe, it will helps you too.
