    Menu Bar Backup Icon
    Before update of OSX Lion to OS Maverick, the backup icon in the menu bar would rotate during backup indicating that the process was operating.

    Since installation of Maverick, the icon no longer rotates when backup in operation. Is this related to the Maverick OS or might there be something I have inadvertently changed?

    Thank you.

    No, the icon is no longer rotating in Mavericks.

    It only adds what looks to be another arrow facing the existing arrow in the circle when backing up kinda wish they did not screw with it.

    Goes to show how much I pay attention to that icon. You guys are right, it no longer rotates while the backup is in progress. Now I have to keep the System Preferences dialog open to see if TM is doing the backup. Another move forward by Apple.....
