Change the one-hour interval of Time Machine backups.

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.
