    Hi there, I have a macbrook pro 2.4ghz Core 2 duo with 2 gig Ram, seem to have major problems here. Actually i should first start out this is not my computer it is my friends. It was previously on sow leopard, upgraded to the latest version of Moutain lion. Previously it was so slow and would always get the spinning beach ball when it would do nothing. It obviously had something corrupt. I tried to make a backup by using time machine but it would always fail with the error

The backup was not performed because an error occured while copying files to the backup disk. The problem may be temprary. Try again later to back up. If the problem persists, use dick utility to repair your backup disk.

 

So I changed drives, I ran disk utiloty in recovery mode on the computer drive, all is well. 

Eventually I gave up on time machine and just tried to transfer files individually over to the externakl drive and started with photos and ended up getting the dreaded error -36.

So back to time machine, I came across the widget time machine buddy, well this at least was giving me an idea for errors, but what i don't get is everything seems to be corrupt. The first like I could see which files it was hanging on and giving problems. So I excluded them in prefrences. Good here I was hopeing i would at least get one back up done, unfortuantly no, it just finds more errors. I will post below at the end the latest log from time machine buddy. I jsut ask if anyone has any suggestions how I can get these files off of this computer I would really appreciate it.  This has really stumped me. I shoudl also mention I tried coping the drive in recovery mode by making an image of the Mac HD but that failed to.  The only other thing I guess I can try that I havent is I could throw this computer into target mode and try take files from it with my other computer but I imagine I will have the same results.  Really hope to hear from someone. Thanks for reading.
