    Not to be argumentative, but can you explain why it fixed not only the button issues in the system preferences, but also fixed all the Apple programs (especially iPhoto) that could no longer export, because the pop-up windows were invisible? Nothing you suggested got us anywhere, and this worked.


    Also, you need to be less high-handed. I'm not very likely to accept your advice in the future, because it didn't work, and you've been kind of condescending about it.

    Hi. :)

    I have a problem I can't update my macbook 10.6.8 to Mavericks, because of Time Machine. It says ''This disk is used for Time Machine backups.”, but I'm not even using Time Machine and it's switch off.





    MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I see that a question from months ago has gotten no response, but I do not know where to turn, so here goes...


    I have an early 2008 iMac. When I first switched to Mavericks (a mistake, I fear), backups on my Time Machine were slow, but they did eventually happen. Now, just a few days ago, they stall indefinitely. I get a message in Time Machine system preferences window that reads something like: "Backing up: 18.8 MB of 7.12 GB" But there the process just stops.


    I downloaded the TM Buddy (or whatever it's called) widget in order to get the relevant logs. Here is what I copied from it:



    Property list invalid for format: 200 (property lists cannot contain NULL)

    Finished scan

    Not using file event preflight for Macintosh HD

    Found 29937 files (6.47 GB) needing backup

    9.69 GB required (including padding), 1.6 TB available



    Can you tell me what this means and what, if anything, I can do to get backing up going again?
