It has taken over two days for a new 2 terabyte Time Capsule to back up 4. 2 gigabytes of 79.2 GB. Is that normal? It took 16 hours before it even started to back up and until then it read, "Making backup disk available . . .". Presumably, it was formatting the hard drive, but is this normal? Is there anything I can do to speed up the process? At the present rate, it may be 20 days more before it finishes the first backup. Why?
