Ah, OK. Thank you. So the frantic disk activity wasn't connected to the frantic OS activity with sdbackupbytime that was being reported on Console. But that's ALL that Console was reporting. If it was Spotlight activity, wouldn't that show up on Console as well?

I don't use Spotllght, and I have unchecked all the "categories" in Spotlight prefs. So I was presuming that Spotlight wasn't indexing anything. I guess to disable Spotlight indexing entirely I have to get rid of /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist. I will do that.

But out of curiosity, what exactly is sdbackupbyime doing at the end of a backup?
