Well, I think I have the answer to one: about 6 minutes. That is, the SP TM panel says last backup at 7:00, next one at 7:54. So it must take about six minutes. (80GB hard drive)

Next: Would it be normal to experience a slow down while Time Machine is running? (OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)
Model Name: Mac mini
Model Identifier: Macmini2,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 1.83 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 2 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz

When I clicked on the TM logo in the Dock, I got a Star Wars desktop with copies of a Finder Window (Desktop folder) receding into a black hole. At the bottom, it said "Cancel", "Current", and something else. Everything was still slow. I canceled. Is this the screen you go to in order to get something out of Time Machine? It sure doesn't seem that the SP TM panel is the place for that.
