Trying to backup to my external HD. I'm using Snow Leopard, and this isn't the first back up. Had computer for 2  years, and this just started about a month ago. No new updates around that time that I can recall. Backups taking more than 24 hours! I used to be able to have a backup in less than an hour, so I had hourly backups. Any idea how to fix this? I don't want to neglect backing up and need them, because I've had to use them before in the past.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
