    Hi There.
    I want to make a backup of entire content of my exsistent AirPort Extreme HDD to some external drive.
    Since copyng file from AirPort Extreme HDD to a Mac over Lan is extremly slow.

    Can toy give me some recomendations?

    THnx

    Hello and welcome.

    -What version of OS X on your Mac?
    -Is this an Airport Extreme Base Station with a USB hard drive attached or an actual Time Capsule with internal hard drive?
    -Have you tried connecting your Mac directly to one of the AirPort Extreme's Ethernet LAN posts - speed should be much faster than via Wi-Fi.

    so,
    correction,
    Yosemite.

    and, if i connect direct, is more slower actually...

    i think i have 2 partitions.
    one is form TimeMachine,
    and other where i have some pictures etc.
    and access to that partition is tooo slow.....
    copying folder with 6 files, start with preparing to copy...
    take about few minuts, and then, and than, fail...."The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “MyData” can’t be found."
