When I execute iTunes mtmd sucks up most of cpu resources. Apparently it is backing up files to my primary hd. Why?

I assume this is happening on the Mac in your signature? According to this article tbat appears to be the Mobile Time Machine snapshot daemon.

Do you have Time Machine enabled without access to your backup drive? If so, Time Machine is probably either creating a local snapshot or deleting a local snapshot to make room on the internal drive.

Thanks for your response.

I do have Time Machine running with access to external backup disk. This disk is almost full, however, TM indicates that backups are being completed. I also see that my system drive contains more "backup" space used than anything else.

Could it be because my external backup drive is so full that TM is actually backing up to the system drive?
