I have the drive connected for over 24 hrs and time machine will only back up 25% of the 75Gb it claims to need to back up.

I have re tried and get the same result, and T.M. will show "backing up" even after 24 hrs.


I know it is not the drive being too full or being defective, since a partition set up for a pc works just fine.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6)
