Mac Time Machine Backup


In case you Mac TimeMachine Takes long ... After Mountain Lion the backup takes long ... I think there is a bug in spotlight.

How to solve it ?

Technically stop the spotlight using the command ...

Open up a terminal

> sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

Now the Backup will be faster.

Once done enable the spotlight back

> sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

My backup took very long ... got this solution and finished my back up.

Hope this helps ...
