What is a good speed? My TC connected to mac mini i7 (16Gb memory) with ethernet cable is doing three days to backup 433Gb of data with TM. TC firmware upd 7.6.3 installed, spotlight disabled from within terminal. Dropbox uninstalled. Can I do more on this moment? Has network settings to do with the speed? Firewall? Mac Keeper?
The guy I talked to from Apple said that is too slow. Originally my backup of about that size was done over night. It's nothing that you did and has nothing to do with network settings etc. Time Machine is broken. Apple realizes this now and is contacting people so they can try and figure out what's wrong.
did some research and did remove a sitecom router out of the same network. reset and reconfigured the time capsule, then it gave me a message that a should put it in bridge mode instead of dhcp, did it and all works fast now, time mache tells me now: 160gb in about 5 hours and the time is running still down!
also having problems using sparsebundles on network ( afp / cifs )
everything slows down extremely, mounting and ejecting takes forever.. finder hangs..
other afp actions work as expected, worked in 10.7
So my conclusion now is that Mountain Lion has a severe issue with networking and/or remote sparse bundles, causing all (or at least much) of our Time Machine backup grief.
My thoughts exactly!
I bought recently a brand new Mac Mini i7 with SSD and 4GB internal RAM.
Started TM, and it looked it would last ages to complete.
Then I upgraded the RAM to 16GB, surprise surprise, the TM did compete in 3 hours !!!
So I guess one of the triggers micht be too less RAM.
BTW, with 4GB Ram Mountain Lion runs very sluggish, and I use now at least 8GB in every Mac I have or install for clients, and no one is ever having any problem with TM ...
I talk about more than 100 Macs, some in networks, some as stand alone.
Well, I managed to force my backup to complete. I noticed that about 9 hours into a 8GB backup, syslogd memory consumption had grown to over 1GB, so I killed it. The backup got faster and finally finished after a few more hours. By then, syslogd ended up taking another 600MB, even after the backup was complete.
So I'm not sure if syslogd memory usage is directly related to TM or if it was causing TM to deprioritize itself due to how much memory it used.
I noticed my afp connection is dropping when browsing a sparsebundle file via right click - show package contents. i'm not even trying to mount it and afp gives up..
other afp operations continiue to work fine.
seriously apple, i little tiny bit of testing.....

Time for a resume (https://discussions.apple.com/message/20854329#20854329)
Everything works perfect!
I have a MBP 3,1 Core 2 Duo 2,4Ghz.
I've upgraded from 10.7 to 10.8. When I'm trying to use time machine on my time capsule (last gen) with airport express (802.11n) the transmission speed drops from 160/200 to 6/13. (with LAN everthing OK)
Downgrading the IO80211Family.kext from 5.0 to 4.2 using Kext Wizard solved all the problems for me.
Now, 1 1/2 months later, everything still works perfect!
Apple, please dont`t forget the MBP 3,1 Core 2 Duo 2,4Ghz users in your updates!
