    I tried all the various suggestions on here all day yesterday with no success. Got into bed, read some apple news on flipboard app on my iPhone and it turned out 3 hours earlier apple fixed the issue with an update.

     

    AND IT WORKS!!!! just software update everything and you will be fine. I was doing my first backup as I had to delte old ones to make enough room. Doing this took the backup time from 6 days to 5 hours for 400gb!!! left it overnight and its sorted.

     

    Then I upgraded to mountain lion and its backed up that new 10gb worth in about 20 minutes. Also had no issues with Mountain Lion and I use Logic Pro with loooooooads of dodgey plugins, both work beautifully, really reccomend upgrading!!

    Updating to MacCombo (Lion 7.5) resolved the slow time machine, but now spotlight as well as finder search won't work at all.  I tried cleaning all the caches, but nothing seems to work.  Anybody know how to resolve the search / time machine conflict?  Downgrade to 7.4?

    Install the supplemental update (it's not included in the 10.7.5 "combo").

     

    Avaiable via Software Update, the App Store, or directly from: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1599

    The supplemental update solved the issue for me.

    I can declare: well done, Apple!

    no, not for me Time Machine ist saying for about a hour: preparing backups. And worse: It can not be solved by disabling spotlight.

     

    Any one else with this problem?

    I had lots of Time Machine trouble with Lion. A work around that appears successful, is to disable the automatic backups, and backup as needed after shutting down web traffic (quit Mail and Safari)  We shall shortly see if the l0.7.5 update will fix things. (numerous crashes and hangs also).

    Apple just released "OS X v10.7.5 Supplemental Update 1.0" today. It addresses this issue. I have not tested it yet but it is now available. Its a small update that requires a restart.

    That may be a different problem;  the slow backups were very slow during the copying phase.

     

    And under some circumstances (such as, the previous backup failed, especially if you have a lot of data on your system, and even more if your backups are being done wirelessly), it may be normal for the next backup only.

     

    See #D1 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.

    It looks like it is now. After applying the Supplemental update to a Lion partition updated to 10.7.5 with the original combo updater, the build number went from 11G56 to 11G63. Following a tip in Tech Tails published by Small Dog Electronics, I downloaded the combo updater from the Apple Support website about an hour ago. The posting date hasn't changed but the Disk image size was noticeably different. After installing it over a different Lion partition  which had been updated with the original combo updater but not touched by the Supplemental update, that partition also went from 11G56 to 11G63.

     

    I don't use Spotlight so I didn't notice the problem in the first place and can't speak for whether the new combo updater has fixed what the Supplemental update did but Software Update is not offering the Supplemental update anymore. So I guess there's a 10.7.5 combo updater v1.1 just like there was a 10.6.8 combo updater v1.1, just not labeled.

    Yes, that may be true now if you use Software Update or the App Store;  it's probably not so if you use the direct download.

     

    But as long as you end up with 11G63, you're up to date.

    I got the 10.7.5 combo updater from here: http://http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1582. Is that what you mean by direct download? It still says "Post Date: September 19, 2012" but it now results in build 11G63.

     

    I've always used the Apple Support download pages to get updates since I  archive them and use them on multiple test partitions rather than downloading over and over. And that makes possible things like file size comparisons, in case that's of interest.

    I really wish theywouldn't do that;  either change the date, or leave it alone (as they did with the last update to Snow Leopard).  After a while, there's no problem, but all the servers don't necessarily get updated at the same time, so some folks may get different results.
