Replaced MacBook Pro (Lion) with MacBook Air (Maverick)
Read all the articles on Time Machine backups very slow with Maverick.
Tried all suggested remedies; none of them worked.
Finally decided to just let it backup without interruption.
I am on Day 6 since I started backup.
The time machine window says 138GB of 199GB backed up.
It looks like the pace of backup has picked up.
80GB first 4 days; 55GB last 2 days.
Still crazy - makes no sense.
Hoping once this first backup is done, performance will be better.
