Answer: as slow as dogsh*t (maybe slower). The device is actually working, but oh, so slowly. Is this normal behavior for a USB hard drive? Are they really this slow (1 Gb per hour, more or less)?
I've never noticed it that slow..
at a guess: a few hours for the initial
backup of 200 G or so..
have noticed TM slowing the system in
general during backup ( lots of 'thinking'?)
never heard suggestion of no other files,
so I'll be interested in the answer to that
