TimeMachineEditor

Version 5.1.9

Change the one-hour interval of Time Machine backups.

TimeMachineEditor overview

TimeMachineEditor lets you change the one-hour interval of Time Machine backups. You can change the interval or create a more sophisticated scheduling.

TimeMachineEditor triggers Time Machine backups when it is most appropriate, the whole backup process is still handled by Time Machine. TimeMachineEditor is not a "hack", it does not modify system files.

Perfect for what I need! I have a 2012 MacBook Pro that I've upgraded to max Ram and a nice 2TB solid state drive. It still flies, and in this day of iOS devices, it gets used, but not as often as several years back. In 2021, the OS must now stay where it is, which will be useful for years to come. But it does NOT need to clog my external drives with backups over and over. If you've ever used the preferred method of deleting backups by entering Time Machine, you know it can be slow and ponderous. Rather than worry about keeping on top of that process, I'd just as soon have the backup process run less often. Now, instead of several times a day, I have TimeMachineEditor schedule the built-in Mac backup once a week. Most of the time, I still won't have changed much on the HD, if anything at all, as it is. I've been using this app for a few months now, and never had a single problem. It's amazingly easy and uncomplicated ... just make sure you disable Automatic Backups in Time Machine Preferences. Fear not- the backups are still done by Time Machine as always. They just happen at the schedule that YOU pick. TimeMachineEditor is a godsend, IMHO.

You Mac users who gave this developer & his work 1 Star, need to check yourselves. You are lame, selfish, undisciplined children, who strut this world with an air of entitlement, believing every-single-person-and product made on this Planet, must conform to your exact standards & criteria. Or brother –– watch out. First off, this is a FREE application, geniuses… Secondly, I’ve used TimeMachineEditor since its inception, without a single problem, whatsoever. You sit back & nit-pick about things the developer has nothing to do with: (Example—▶︎) “I want this to work, but my Time Machine backup is stuck on "Preparing backup.” For this he gave the app 2 ★★. Let me say what I’ve said before in this review section years before: This is a flawless application, which does, every time, what it says it will do for you & your Mac. Period. I’m a Mac diagnostic technician who charges $175 an hour to come to your house to fix your Mac’s Hardware/Software issues. Stop reviewing if you don’t know how to use your Mac and/or the Program! It works –– some of you don’t. I’m indebted to this developer and I’m donating today, because I looked in my Software Folder and found no PayPal receipt. I was ashamed because I just assumed I had donated, as I most often do for programs I use daily, and cannot imagine being without. Knock it off with the 1 & 2 ★★ reviews.

Please help. I downloaded this several days ago because I was fed up with automatic back up slowing everything down. It tells me that I have installed it as per my back up instructions but I can see nowhere to show it is backing up. I need to know it is backing up. The dialogue box for the Time Machine itself just says last back up was before I installed the software. I am getting anxious now.

Downloaded (highly rate?!) TimeMachineEditor.app on my iMac in order to perform a 1x daily backup (instead of hourly, which can't be changed) with MacOS High Sierra. Did it to salvage an old backup drive which eventually ended up unsalvagable, so I bought a bigger new backup drive and deleted the app as space is no longer an issue... NIGHTMARE!! I have deleted the TimeMachineEditor.app (using uninstaller on "CleanMyMac 3"), emptied the trash, restarted (several times) and STILL I get this time machine error: "The default one-hour scheduler of Time Machine has been disabled since you are using TimeMachineEditor instead. You can disable TimeMachineEditor from its application if you do not wish to use it anymore..." Only thing I haven't done is remove its preferences is the following recommendation as I cannot find the hidden TImeMachineEditor files!? I'm tempted to throw all of these folders out as I think they probably, replace themselves and might solve the problem. HELP!? Anyone have the same problem or have a fix?? Search for the items with the name of TimeMachineEditor 4.2.1 in the following locations: /Library /Library/Caches /Library/Preferences /Library/Application Support /Library/LaunchAgents /Library/LaunchDaemons /Library/PreferencePanes /Library/StartupItems

So, I installed this app because the time machine quit working on my mac that I had macOS server. Once installed and backup intervals set, I received a notification from Server that Volume 36A09335-1A67-4B37-9D77-1983D53024C9 not responding. This can't be good. If the time machine editor affects any volume on your server this is not a good sign.

Yes, my update kept quitting and a new install did the same. However, an email to the developer resulted in a very quick reply, and a link to a version that works as expected. I am very impressed with the service and have always liked the app as it does what it says and is updated on a regular basis.

I downloaded this as an Update. My old TimeMachine Editor worked fine. But what used to work, no longer works. Every time I try to open, all I get is a "TimeMachineEditor Quit Unexpectedly" notice (and "reopen" has the same results). What happened??? Any ideas on how to resolve? I'm running Sierra.

Yeah, love it for giving me control over how TimeMachine works. Apple should've built such functionality into their app, of course, but well, that's Apple for you.
