Getting Started With Apple’s Time Capsule.

Links to Info IconLooking into a question from Martha regarding the initial set-up time when configuring Apple’s Time Capsule for the first time, I ran into the following info.

That’s the general info… but Martha mentioned that a power surge/outtage during her initial back up which led me to this relevent information.

So the good news is that what Martha is experiencing is normal behaviour. If your initial backup, which even under ideal conditions is going to take awhile, is interupted for any reason… when it restarts, the process will take even longer than it would have as the computer first has to check the integrity of the backup already completed…

So my advice would be to initialize the backup process and let it ride…
