That did it. It finally got through a backup and just now finished. It's the first one in three months. I didn't realize it had been that long. I'm glad that's going again.

Wow, thanks for digging that up. I'll exclude the folder where those pictures are that are causing the problem and see what happens. There are some 22 GB of pictures there.

I'm repairing disk permissions on the internal hard drive again and it's finding a whole lot more of them. Could the internal hard drive be so messed up that I should replace it?

It's done. It didn't take an hour. There was a long list of permissions repaired. I've rebooted on the internal hard drive now and have started a TM backup. We'll see if it finishes this time.

Did you or any of the other clowns ripping on me read my post closely enough to see where I'm using 10.6 and I no longer have 10.3? You put a lot of effort into replying, and for what.
