I've been trying to backup my photos for days (if not weeks). Even today my computer and Lightroom has been running for hours and no pictures have copied over. Is this normal?

I just tried unchecking 'Store a copy of all originals at the specified location' and rebooted. That option is still checked after Lightroom reboots. Tried it a few times. Lightroom also can't connect to the network.

Still super slow. I've basically left my computer running from around 7pm to 10pm. I'm looking at all the files it has updated per day. Jan 19th had no files.

So depending on your computer you will notice this more or less, assuming you have a perfect computer with lots of ram 16GB or more and SSD disks for data and operating system, and a high-speed internet connection you should be okay, assuming you don't have a large photo set (150,000) of large >1MB photos. even with this the latest light-room will crash during the de-dup phase, and pop ups will say something went wrong, and it can take days,  for Windows users using a util like Microsoft's procmon64 you can see what the process is doing, files are read in situation e.g. (E:\photos\archive) and then copied into the worse place possible your local profile under %appdata%, C: ergo if you have 1TB on E: you need to have 1TB on C: and endure the file COPY, once landed the code uses a sync spawned sub-process to upload to the cloud. (that is after both checking that the file is not already there and having built a preview). From experience, I have found it better to use a hard symbolic link and reroute my %appdata% \adobe\lightroom folder to a dedicated SSD, and weekly uninstall and then reinstall the application. to chunk up my import folders (trees) to have less than 20,000 files within and do no more than 2 concurrent imports. The application's error trapping is utter crap, slowly the upload will work. I guess for users with a small collection it works fine but for the serious user's it needs to be made much more reliable and configurable.

Thanks for the response. My library is 26,000 photos. I am using a Mac so I'm not able to do the 'hack' you mention. I was also trying to sync photos over a network drive. Something Adobe claims they can do per a support page I found. However, I don't think this is the case.  Using a small script I wrote, I could see the progress per day. See chart below. Keep in mind, Feb 1, I had the computer on allll day. I've given up with the network drive and moved to an external USB SSD. We'll see if the results are any better.
