Maverick slows to crawl after time machine backup

OS maverick slows to crawl after time capsule incremental backup completes. Checked by stopping Time Capsule incremental backup and system remains stable and quick, switch back on time capsule and after incremental backup apps do not respond, constant kaleidoscope busy indicator, cannot launch apps, close apps - nothing works. Only solution is a manually forces re-boot via on/off switch.

This is not a Hard Drive problem. I am having issues with Time Machine as well after moving to Mavericks. I have tried three different drives and one I securely erased / reformatted. Mavericks fail.

SOURCE: My apple time capsule has a yellow flashing light

Hi Sorry to hear you're having trouble,
There have been some recent updates for the Airport and Time Capsule product line.
One of the many features of these products is that when an update is available, the green light turns amber ( a little weaker than the error yellow color )
Try connecting to is and see if it is awaiting an update..
Usually, the error yellow indicates a problem that would either prevent it from operating properly or that your network is unacceptably exposed to the outside internet.

Testimonial: "Thank I mentioned I paid $400 with a monitor from CRAIG'S LIST and I was naive enough (stupid actually) not to ask the kid for the OS X install disc, when I saved the backup, I must have forgotten to SAVE USER SETTINGS, because know NONE of the GREAT PROGRAMS which were probably pirated seem to work now asking for serial numbers the "

Help i want to reformat my Macbook pro laptop which uses Mac OS 10.9.2 to Mac OS mavericks

the current OS version available for download is Yosemite 10.10.5
therefore if you wanna instal the older Maverick you need to find it as a torrent file and download it.
The file is around 5.3GB and arrives as a self-installer app in your Applications directory, if you want to install Mavericks on other Macs without having to re-download it on each machine, you will need to copy that installer outside of Applications before attempting the installation, otherwise the self-installer will remove itself upon completion.

OS Maverick very slow after time capsule backup

Use the App "Activity Monitor" to see what process is driving hard. if not already open: open the activity monitor window. Click the CPU% tab and show highest percentages at the top (should be an upside down triangle) may have to click the CPU% twice to do this. now the Activity monitor is showing you what processes are eating up your computers power. Google the process/es . It may be indexing the drive, which can take a long time. there are other processes too, that you should just let it do. once they are done, then things should be good. Such is the case for me when I upgraded to Mavericks.
