Time machine keeps daily snapshot for past month and hourly for the last 24 hours.
My question - I am only seeing backups at the rate of anywhere from 3-6 per day. Looking at the TM folder I see this -
3 backups yesterday, 6 the day before. We are 8 hours into the new day, and no backup has completed yet.
I am running 10.6.8 on a 12 core MacPro. The only BU is for the main drive, a 512GB SSD with only 52GB of capacity used.
- Is it normal for the backs to take so long?
- Is there anything I can do to speed this up?
For what it's worth, I rebooted after posting (6 hours ago) and told time machine to start a backup. It still shows "indexing" after 6 hours.
New Edit - After posting the above, backups continued to take a few hours, so I still saw a few per day. As of now, no backup has completed in 48 hours. Still hoping for a way to troubleshoot this. Even wiping the backup and starting fresh would be ok, but I'm not confident the problem won't reappear.
