Time Machine Happy

So, as many of you may remember, I had tons of problems with Time Machine when OS X 10.5 first came out. Eventually I gave up on it, deciding to wait for 10.5.2. At the same time, I discovered a corrupt directory, which I got rid of and may have fixed the problem on its own. But I still waited for 10.5.2. And then after that I waited until I’d done a complete backup and moved it to a separate place so even when I started time machine if I had something go wrong I could still get back to it. So, about 11 days ago I finally started Time Machine under 10.5.2 for the first time.

For 10 days it worked PERFECTLY. And then the computer crashed. Now, in the past, my two modes of failure were that Time Machine was super slow (definitely not the case this time) and that after a crash it could not recover and resume backups. So this was the big test.

And it came out with flying colors. All is fine.

I can now officially state I am very happy with Time Machine. Woo.
