Back in March, I wrote a post about Time Machine, which is a part of Mac OS X 10.5. I had once tried a utility called Time Machine Editor, which I later commented that I’d had mixed results. After using the program, I ended up turning Time Machine off and backing up manually. This worked fine, but I would often let a week go by without backing up. I wanted a backup interval somewhere between the default setting of every hour, and the option of turning if off all together.
So I have recently decided to revisit the Time Machine Editor tool, and I have been very pleased with it this time around. The latest version as of this writing is 2.0.1. I have it set to back up my Mac every night at midnight to my external hard drive. It has been working great. I can say I highly recommend it. I would also argue that the functionality of this program should be built in to OS X to begin with!
