    How long did it take for your Time Machine backup to complete?
    It took mine 16hrs and 30 min through my AEBS to backup 29gb

    I'm assuming you're connected wirelessly? That would explain why it took so long.

    Back when I was using Time Machine, it took maybe a couple of hours to backup almost 100GB to an external drive connected via USB.

    Took me 17 or 18 hours to back up 69GB. It's a lot faster via ethernet though.
