I started the time machine and it seems to me that is going no where. It's been over 10 hours. Any option or arrow works, or it seems to me that is not working. Itried to "esc", and also restar the computer but nothing is working.


What should I do?

Mac OSx, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:


    Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the page that opens.


    Select "system.log" from the file list. Enter "backupd" (without the quotes) in the String Matching text field. Post the messages from the last backup, beginning with "Starting standard backup."


    Post the log text, please, not a screenshot. If there are runs of repeated messages, post only one example of each. Do not post many repetitions of the same message.


    Some personal information, such as the names of your files, may be included — edit that out, too, but don’t remove the context.
