I have a new backup drive, this one works over FireWire 800. I haven’t use Time Machine in a while, and was eager to get that going again.

I started the backup and Apple told me it would take about 50,000 plus days to complete.

Here is a screen shot:


So in that case, when I am about 170 days old, in the year 2150 – my backup will be done!

Normally back ups show you time in hours and minutes. For some perspective, 50,000 days is 1,200,000 hours and 72,000,000 minutes.

Lucky me, the backup is now at about 15 days from now – which is still wrong. I might reboot it and see if it speeds things up.
