I just bought two My passport for Mac products to maintain backups for my MacBook Pro. I install the utilities and security, and then set up time machine to begin my backup yesterday about 4 p.m. It is now 9 a.m. CST and I have backed up 130MB of 340 GB and it says it will take 29 days to backup my system. That can’t even be right - what do I do?
