With the introduction of Time Machine. Apple has introduced a solution for one of my worst computer habits. Not doing regular backups. Time Machines hourly backup schedule would be great if I owned a 10 terabyte hard drive or Drobo which is pretty much the same thing.
32 Gigs is a lot of space. That is how much data I have on my 80 gig internal drive. Now multiply that by twelve every day. “Brad whips out calculator.” 384 gigs, I can multiple see public schools are good for something. So that is how many copies you will have in your backup directory. Ok that is just plain crazy and wasteful. Can someone say “Throwing the Hard Drive industry a bone?”
I found this little app called Time Machine Scheduler 2.2 It solves many of time machines problems. Like being able to Schedule how often Time machine makes backups. I have mine set for every twelve hours. I just don’t need twelve backups a day.
You can download Time Machine Scheduler 2.2 from klieme.com
