Time Machine Editor: change the one-hour backup interval


I’ve been using this little piece of software for about a year now, and it’s really great. While the default one-hour backup of OS X’s Time Machine is definitely a nice feature, incremental backups per hour is not what everybody wants. Actually, the one-hour backup makes your external drive get full in a blink of an eye. So, to avoid this you can set the Time Machine to a predetermined schedule for your incremental backups. The best part, its free! So start downloading and customize your Time Machine Backups. Happy days!

TimeMachineEditor is a software for Mac OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion that lets you change the default one-hour backup interval of Time Machine.

Note: I know there are a lot of people having trouble with Time Machine on Mac OS X Lion and the WD My Book World Edition. After months of partial solutions I’ve come to a decent solution. I will post this later this week.

  1. Hi
    Can’t wait to hear how you have addressed the Time Machine backup issue with My Book World. I’ve been wrestling with this for ages!

  2. Thanks, Great tool!
    also, you can reduce the anoying backup factor by schedulling a wake up call for your computer and do the backup then. To schedule a wake up, go in SystemPreference > EnergySaver > Schedule.
