j.doe had trouble on 28 May 2011
for a PPC machine running 10.3.9, i had hoped to rely on iBackup 7.3.1 to perform a weekly backup. (i do use the old machine regularly, and keep information on it i would like regularly backed up.)

iBackup does write the backup to the proper place (a drive on an external machine, and the machine being backed up is connected to the external machine via cat5 cable, so no airport issues with speed or connectivity).

it is incredibly sloowwwwwwww.

the weekly backup started friday at 7:30am, and 26.5 hours later, it is 961MB through a 2.6GB backup.

i can see progress in the log drawer occasionally (chgrp commands from what i can tell at the moment), so i know it's not completely hung.

it is in the Applications folder, and once i can get the whole folder backed up, i can take that out of the list of things to back up.

why would the chgrp commands be so slow? why are they necessary? is there something else that could be causing the slowness?

any thoughts?
[Version 7.3.1]
