After upgrade to Mountain Lion the Time Machine is very very slow and won't Back Up all my files, stops at 10gb of 400gb.
Apple support must give solutions.
This is not Apple Support. This is a user-to-user forum. If you want to contact Apple directly, make an appointment at your nearest Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider, or call AppleCare. Click the Contact link at the bottom of this page.
If you want help from us, please tell us what you're backing-up to (external HD, Time Capsule, or what), and whether you're getting an error message (if so, what) or if the backup is just hanging.
Also, were you backing-up to the same destination ok before the upgrade?

Thank you for your reply, first I'll try to fix the problem here but thanks for the advice to contact Apple Support
I'm backing-up to a Iomega eGo Firewire disk Mac Edition. Before upgrade to Mountain-Lion I don't have any problem with backup process.
I've tried many times do backups during on the night, but the problem is, after this hours just copy 10gb to disc. Therefore, on the day light I tried to see what happen during this process. It starts backup normally, copy 2 or 3gb very fast, without any problem but after this enter in slow mode and don't copy my files to disk normally

But does it fail, with a message (if so, what)?
Or does it just hang -- still there, still saying "xxx GB of yyy GB," with nothing changing?
If it's hanging, there may be a problem with the directory on one of the disks. Try Verifying your internal HD, and repairing the Time Machine drive, per #A5 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.
If that doesn't help, a clue may be lurking in your logs. Use the widget in #A1 of Time Machine - Troubleshooting to display the backup messages from your logs. Locate the backup in question, then copy and post all the messages here.

I have had this problem and it was solved in the following way.
Spotlight took 3 days to index, during that time Time Machine would not finish and kept hanging sometimes after 2kb!
So after reading around I realised that people were reporting this problem and that Spotlight's indexing seemed to be creating problems so I let the Spotlight indexing finish and then reconnected the Time Machine external HD which then did its job as usual.

Thanks Swiggen! This worked perfectly. It also took me 2-3 days to index. and then a few minutes to back up 118gb.
One thing though is that my Spotlight didn't appear to be indexing before I started this. So I stopped it (through terminal) and then restarted the function. It then indexed for 2-3 days.
