Default Rstores from Time Machine Make the System Slow - 09-02-2009, 02:14 PM

Back when i had an old macbook pro, the time machine restores would make the system extremely slow...

I've never needed to use this function to save from a bad install, i just reinstall the OS if needed (that IS if i can boot into anything and use carboncopycloner).

Has this been measured? Proven? Shown that certian system files are not being updated in the proper manner? or whatever the case may be for Time Machine Restore Muck?

Surely someone has charts n graphs and all that nice multimedia fx to show this is a quantifiable manner! :P

on another i wish my dell mini had audio...netbookinstaller, and the kext b7 app don working.

I've done a few restores from Time Machine with my 10v, and I think it does make it a bit slower. I have no quantifiable reason for it, but it definitely seems a lot slower with some things than it did before.

I'm itching to do a rebuild though, so we'll see if there's a difference afterwards.

I've done some Time Machine restores on my MBP and have not noticed any resulting slowness. Then again, I've only restored some minor apps with the bulk of my restores being data in my user account.

I'm wondering if this might be due to corrupt file/disk permissions?

I was wondering the same thing. I would suggest running OnyX after a TimeMachine restore to ensure disk permissions and everything is straightened out.

other than that I cannot think of a reason behind this

I used Migration Assistant from a TM backup when I sold my MBP and got an iMac 24"... I obviously had no baseline to compare the performance to on my iMac (since my first install was a restore from TM and I have not looked back since), but things seem to run well.
