Perhaps I was too hasty, but time machine was preparing to back up for a long time so I stopped the back up, but it won't stop. It say's stopping backup, but that's been 20 minutes. I have time machine on all the time I'm on the computer, it will back up every hour, so there are no large back ups, why won't it stop?
