Have been using Time Machine for over a year with minimal problems. More recently, however, I'm noticing that often my open applications aren't responding and sometimes must force-quit them ... almost always Time Machine is doing its thing when this occurs.

 

 

If I see that TM is active, I sometimes will use the pulldown menu to stop the process. Even if it says, for example, "Backing up 260K of 8.6Mb" it takes at least 5 go 6 minutes for the backup process to cease. There have been times when I've walked away from the computer and returned 20 minutes later to see that it's still "stopping back up."

 

Also having more diffulty with accessing anything on my wireless network (mail, internet, printer) when TM is engaged in its backup.

 

All of this makes me wonder if I'm seeing corrupt files or faulty hardware ....

 

Any ideas?
