Hi Jerry,
Not worried about the RAM, it's cheap as you say.

I've been thinking about starting afresh with Time Machine.  I don't have
enough room to start a second partition for the new backup so I'll just
have to wipe the disk and start over.  I guess I'll just leave it running
overnight and hope for the best!
