sparsebundle backup very slow

Recommended Posts

Made a block copy of a disk drive to a sparsebundle image. mounted the sparsebundle image and tried to back up its contents via retrospect to a file set located on a firewire drive. i back up using file sets to this firewire drive all the time.


the backup was hideously slow--maybe 100 to 1000 times slower than normal. i canceled it.


OSX 10.5.2 on a MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM. retrospect 6.1.138, driver


the sparsebundle image had about 20GB of data in it.
