However, I try to backup my 320gb internal Imac drive which is 300GB full. Created a 400 GB image on an external USB drive an moved it to the DS, however, now after 6,5 hours its 32 of 261 GB backed up.
Is there any way I do the backup first to the external usb drive where the image is and later move it to the DS?
Or will it only work when the initial Backup is created on the DS..
I have to say, I wouldnt want to wait 2,5 days for the initial backup. I have a DS108 connected via WLAN to a FritzBox router.
Well if you're doing it over WiFi, then it's no surprise it's taking so long to do the backup. I have a gigabit ethernet wired network and my 100GB initial backups still take over 10 hours.
Since you have the image created on the USB drive, why don't you go ahead and try doing the initial backup to the USB drive and transfer it over. Let us know if it works for you. If it ignores your disk image and just starts creating folders on the USB drive, you'll know it's not working. When using a local USB drive, I think Time Machine usually doesn't use a disk image, it just stores the data within a folder called Backups.backupdb, but maybe if it sees the disk image already exists, it will use that instead. Worth a shot.
