Appoximately 12 min and it will have been three hours, since starting this. It is not even half way done.
Should I stop it or let it go?
I have the same problem with my ipad. i deleted all the back up files and such and it still takes about 1.5-2 hours for 10-11gig on a 32 gig ipad... where as my iphone 4 that i got about 1 month after my ipad take 1-2 min!!! so i'd like to know what the hell the ipad is doing poorly, where as the iphone 4 flys?!?1? /boggle /cry
Long shot solution suggestion.... do you have another docking cable?
I have been reading a lot of forums and some say that switching to another cable cured their backup problems. I mean it was like a miraculous difference!
That's OK... I use one of the older cables (from my Nano!) to sync... when you take it out, you have to squeeze the thingies on the side... don't just yank it out!
It only goes in one way... you shouldn't need to force it.
