Time Machine icon in menu bar

  • Posted: 28 February 2014 10:22 AM

    Since upgrading to Mavericks the Time Machine icon in the menu bar no longer animates when backing up. Anyone else seeing this ? Is there a way to re-animate it, or is it a Mavericks “Improvement” ?

    From what I’ve read the spinning icon was replaced with a static one.  The static icon will appear differently when Time Machine is backing up from when it is not backing up by having an additional arrow.  The purpose is to apparently save processing power and battery.

    Thank you. I thought it may have been just my Mac !

    It is a very small change with TM is running.  Another small arrow is added which is hard to see.  It’s way more obvious in finder when you can see the spinning arrows by the volume name in the sidebar
