View Full Version : SmartUpdate is SuperSlow

I've backed up my entire drive of around 300Gb to a Network Sharepoint.

However when the schedule comes round with Smart Update, it seems to start off from the beginning again - as it takes forever.

My connection averages around 12 to 15MB/s, and it takes around 8 to 9 hours to do a backup.

As far as I'm aware, it was nearing the end of a backup a while ago - but then for some reason the schedule kicked in - a full 6 hours after it's meant to and seems to have undone what just took it 9 hours to do.

I haven't turned this MacPro off in around 3 days because I'm waiting for these backups to complete / 'SmartUpdate'.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or is this just how it is?

Thanks for the help,

Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1

That's why. Our Leopard update will fix this.

Is there a timeframe for that release?

I've downloaded v2.5 and am beginning to run SmartUpdate again.

Let's see how this goes!

Seems to work very well!
