my time machine backup is stored on a linux file server which i connect to wirelessly.  lately, my time machine backups have been extremely slow; my recent attempt to run disk utility on the drive failed with the error: “Disk Utility cannot repair Time Machine.”

here’s a solution that i found on jthon’s place, which i’m currently trying out:

  1. connect to my linux server using the Finder
  2. running hdiutil:  /Users/foo/hdiutil attach -nomount -readwrite /Volumes/TimeMachine/foo.sparsebundle
  3. running fsck_hfs:  /Users/foo/fsck_hfs -rf /dev/disk1s2

fingers crossed this works!
