    Bad publicity often has a magical way of speeding up bug fixing. There is now an article about this issue in a major Mac newspaper in Sweden: http://www.idg.se/2.1085/1.468888/bugg-i-os-x-1075-sabbar-time-machine

     

    Hopefully this will get Apples attention :)

    Sorry to report this but my sollution (reported on page 14), although helps by shortening indexing and TM update, does not solve the problem. It helped me to go from 7 days of Spotlight indexing to 2 hours 15 minutes and 10GB TM backup in 4 hours but now I am back to very slow TM backups (although not as bad as some of you report). I have to ditch TM for now as I don't want to turn off Spotlight - this is how I launch apps and it is a second nature to me now.

     

    Shame on you Apple. At least acknowledge the problem and give us some timeline. Is it the mushroom approach to customers? Keep them in the dark, give them s**t and watch them grow (your sales)?

    Well my index is done.

     

    I dont know if my proposal (page 21/22) was

    part of a possible solution but at least TM and

    SL did their job now within a reasonable time.

    (SL within 6+ hrs.

    TM at normal speed)

    I have just submitted another set of feedback through their system.  I have outlined things again and I will keep doing this on a daily basis until I get an acknowledgement or see something appears.

     

    The issue is caused by 10.7.5 and Apple need to at least acknowldege it...

     

    Log your issues here;

    Lets see what happens, as this is week two for us...

    Yeah... if I were you, I would do two things;

     

    1. keep extending this thread...
    2. log the feedback to Apple via www.apple.com/feedback

    Well here is what I've found right now.

     

    I changed now ALL mdimporters (system/library/spotlight)

    from 10.7.5 to 10.6.8. What can I say: right now the

    new index takes 45 minutes. And this is NO JOKE.

     

    BUT PLEASE WAIT to do it too. I will proof it again.

     

    These are the md's

    Audio.mdimporter

    Automator.mdimporter

    Bookmarks.mdimporter

    Update: What can I say. The indexing is done with

    10.6.8 mdimporters (on my 10.7.5 system).

    Again: its not a joke.

     

    You may see on my posting time it took 37 minutes.

    Can it be? Is there a crack somewhere who can

    proof it to and give me a feedback?

    What about the performance of Time Machine?

     

    Have you noticed any other issues since the 10.7.5 update?

    Neil

     

    Yes - I've had the same problems like all others

    had. (Before I changed the mdimporters.)

     

    I now made a Time Machine Update at normal

    speed. SLight was not switched off.

     

    I have no idea if this is a useful solution for the

    moment. It obviously worked for me. But someone

    else should proof it too before it will be released as

    "the" solution.

     

    Here comes my last update: 

    I now made an SL-indexing on my external

    hard disk (USB 2). 76 GB uesed. Took a few minutes.

    TM was running too without any problems.
