My Mac have 4-core 3.0 GHz CPU with 4 GB RAM, yet this past week or so it seems to slow down to a crawl. Switching applications become sluggish, Dashboard taking its own sweet time to appear, and the CPU meter is constantly showing 100% usage in two of the core.
Easy. Just follow these steps:
sudo defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1
- Obviously you need another Mac to which you want to backup to, with the disk formatted as Mac OS Extended Journaled.
- Open Terminal from Mac you want to backup from. Issue command
- Open System Preferences → Time Machine. Click Change Disk. Your network disk should appear now.
- Select it, and you are good to go.
