    REALLY? don't hold your breath that's all i can say..

     

    like FatMac\>MacProsays check https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4324046?start=0&tstart=0

    You are not clearly stating your problems. As the tens of millions that have downloaded and installed the update and have not come here with an issue, then you are in the tiny minority that are having issues yet make it sound that your issues are Universal. If you state your specific problems then we may be able to pinpoint where your system has made a wrong turn. This is 99% user error, through third party programs or faulty updates, despite what you wish to believe. So please troubleshoot and describe your problems exactly before trying to take it out on people here trying to help.

     

    Cheers

    and......

     

    So whats the problem with 10.7.5? Haven't seen anything that is causing any problems on my Macs nor any that I service?

     

    Pete this is the second and third denial of any problem with 10.7.5 that you have made in the last couple of days, which bears no resemblance to the situation described by the many, many posts, the views of typically 40,000 plus of the posts, the press articles, the online articles from CNET, osxdaily etc.

     

    Please don't make smug comments and call the rest of us fools just because you have thousands of points to your name. You are wrong.

     

    You had no problems? good for you. Thousands have.   Accept it.

    I hope Apple cares about the 47%

    What 47% ? Please back up all these stupid claims with links to your 'figures' or else give us a break. John, by your senior standing one would think you would be used to seeing all these claims in every OSX release and update in history! Time to start doing some serious troubleshooting. As for the bloke posting inbetween, well he makes no sense nor again will provide any links other than troubleshooting forums! That is all you will find in troubleshooting forums!!!

     

    Good luck

    If there's nothing to it, just user error, you better tell Apple since they just released a 10.7.5 supplemental update to resolve "an issue that may cause Time Machine backups to take a very long time to complete."

    Hey kids! What time is it?

     

    ... Time to start doing some serious troubleshooting.

     

    Which Apple already completed, as expected, resulting in the following Software Update:

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1599

     

    The OS X v10.7.5 Supplemental Update is recommended for all users running OS X Lion v10.7.5 and includes the following fixes:

     

    • Resolves an issue that may cause Time Machine backups to take a very long time to complete
    • ...

     

    Pete, you only embarrass yourself by ignoring the thousands of detailed reports regarding this obvious flaw, which I attempted to help you appreciate by consolidating a number of them for your review. Ignore such hints at your peril. Time-consuming experimentation from many users resulted in welcome and helpful workarounds, most notably the OP of this thread (thanks again badga, well done sir).

     

    Responses such as yours screaming with numerous exclamation points only draws attention to your own ignorance. If you intend to be helpful, then be helpful. Listening to users' problems is a prerequisite. Gratuitously claiming such problems do not exist because you have not experienced them is not helpful.

    Yes, I have seen similar bugs introduced in OS X updates over the years. It is not often, but it happens and this one is hardly the worst of them. User error is common and easily fixed, but an issue this widespread was obviously beyond our control.

     

    In each of these instances, Apple fixed their errors. I trust this one does as well.

    John thanks for pointing out the main reason I started this thread. I'm sorry to see that it has caused some ruffled feathers for some but hopefully it has helped many people who have been struggling with their TM & Spotlight issues. If Pete has had no issues then that's great. This is a community where we all want to help each other and resolve issues ASAP and I've had far better help on here at times than from Apple support so well done to you all .

     

    I know Apple have already done a fix for 10.7.5 but I think I'll see how it pans out over the next couple of weeks. I'm sure you won't blame me for that .... well try not to OK

    It resolved your emoticon problem at least! lol

     

    Happy you have no more problems at all with 10.7.5

     

    Cheers

     

    Pete

    I most humbly apologise for any problems I may have caused to your computer's performance through my horribly deceptive comments (just checking my five Macs, no, still no issues) and hope it hasn't effected the world too much and that the 2MB update has completely overhauled the original 2GB Combo Update.

    The Supplemental Update has fixed my Time Machine and Spotlight issues. Apple does care about the 47% (unlike Mitt). Signing out of this thread now.
