So I have been having RAM issues that should be stated up front but. I just purchased a G Drive Slim 500GB 5GB/sec Harddrive with USB3.0/2.0 from the Apple Store to back up my HD before they went inside my comp to do some RAM/(potentially) Logic work. Last night It took 12 hours to back up 5 gb using Time Machine. Now it is saying it is going to take 17days to back up 146GB. Is there anything I can do?


P.S. Also my computer is indexing and says thats going to take 3 weeks. I know I have serious RAM issues, I'm aware of that.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
