There must be something damaged in your installation of OSX. I’d suggest downloading and installing the 10.6.6 “combo” update. That’s the cleverly-named combination of all the updates to Snow Leopard since it was first released, so installing it should fix anything that’s gone wrong since then, such as with one of the normal “point” updates. Info and download available at: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1349 Be sure to do a Repair Permissions via Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilities folder) afterwards.
If that doesn’t help, reinstall OSX from your Snow Leopard Install disc (that won’t affect anything else), then apply the “combo” again.

Apple – Support – Discussions – TimeMachine on Synology 210 NAS …. So the bottom line is that you need a 1 Ghz network or better. It doesn’t seem to work very well with a 100Mbit network. Thanks arv_sydney. If you need instructions to set it up using Appletalk click here. Don’t use this solution for more than 5 computers. The performance cost on your network would probably be too high.
Apple – Support – Discussions – Time Machine backing up, but not really …. If you didn’t repair it or couldn’t, then you can delete it and start over. It’s good to know that it’s a simple fix.
