It's rough around the edges, which is understandable as an early beta version, but it is extremely useful to have. Invaluable for showing what has been backed up and when by Time Machine, and for identifying files that have pushed up the size of those back ups. There are a few stalls and pauses as it calculates the sizes of back-ups which can give the sense of a frozen app (especially immediately after launch) but, when left long enough, it eventually revives itself. Therefore, it could do with a more visual representation of what it is doing other than a simplistic spinning dial and "Please Wait". UI and preferences need work to make the look and feel better, and improve the feature set (e.g. the option to use MB in place of MiB etc. - I find it harder to register the 'iB' nomenclature.

Great program! Works perfectly with the latest El Capitan now! (10.11.6) Many times I'll Time Machine my Mac and wonder when it's finished - WOW- how could I possible use that much data since just yesterday?? TimeTracker shows me exactly what was added. Then I'm thinking, OMG - it's exactly right! And once in a while, I'll even go back in my TM drive and delete a large file that I don't actually "need" backed up. Like an older version of a QT movie, or such! Thank you for a very simple, fast program! It'll look at different Time Machine backups of the same Mac, even at the same time.

It looks like it hasn't been updated in years, but that does not make it less valuable. I love being able to see when my backups were made, and if you are trying to optimize your Time Machine backups (exclude files that are unnecessary), it is exactly what you want. Still works great with the latest version of Mac OS.

Firstly, TimeTracker is spending absolutely hours evaluating my TimeCapsule. Secondly, it's one thing to find large files that maybe should not be backed up every time, but it's another thing knowing what might happen if I delete them (especially where the name gives no clue as to what they do)! Is there a manual anywhere?

I was trying to figure out why my Time Machine backups were taking so long. It was clear that I needed to exclude a cached data file that was unnecessary to back up but was changing all the time. It took me about 5 seconds to do this using TimeTracker. I look forward to using it to help me find backed up files in the future if I need to. Straightforward to use, seemingly accurate, simple and free—what could be better than that!? (Used on Mavericks 10.10.1. Time Machine Backup around 5 TB in size)

With Mavericks TimeTracker indicates no time machine found--this is happening on both my Macs' but works great with SL, Lion and ML. Hopefully, TimeTracker will be updated for Mavericks.

I ran it after downloading and it found everything for me within seconds of running. Well, it crashed the first time I ran it so I just ran it again and it worked the second time. So within seconds of running the second time, I had my folder tree up and figured out and excluded the files (Dropbox status folders!) within a minutes. Because it was so fast, I figured I would write a review and say thanks.

Great little utility! Helped me see why my Time Machine backups were taking so long, and how I could make them smaller. The only problem I had was that my backup was on a ReadyNAS, and so I had to manually mount the Time Machine volume in the Finder before it would function. After that, worked perfectly—even in 10.7.2! Thank you!
