TimeMachineEditor is a free, easy to use application that allows you to change the default settings of your Mac’s device Time Machine hourly backups. There is the default hourly backup that your Mac device does every hour. TimeMachineEditor gives you the full access to change this program to the way you want. TimeMachineEditor is very simple to use and efficient. It allows you to set a new hourly interval, or even specify multiple calendar intervals that suit you for hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly backups. Whether you want daily backups at 4 a.m., or you want your weekly backups at a particular time every weekend or any other possible combination that you might think of, TimeMachineEditor gives you the Administrator’s access to edit and specify when you want the program to run. You can also set Time Machine to automatically back up when an external disk is connected or when the computer wakes from sleep.
Time Machine’s default hourly setting may be okay for most Mac users, thereby making the app not very useful for them. However, Mac users that always work on large files need to schedule their backup to prevent data loss. If you have multiple Mac systems that are sharing just one backup drive and your network becomes extremely slow and unresponsive during a backup process, TimeMachineEditor is the app that you need to make sure your backup activities does not affect your system’s performance. It enables the user to change the one-hour interval of the program’s backup to any time they want. You can modify the interval or decide to make daily, weekly and monthly backups. TimeMachineEditor does not modify existing system files at all. Instead, it handles its own scheduling to trigger Time Machine backups when you want them to occur. Mac users that deal with normal and small files sizes do not really need the app, but TimeMachineEditor is a very useful tool for Mac users that always deal with large files on their system. It is Free, very easy to use and effective.
