10.6: Exclude Software Update data in Time Machine backups
Authored by: alexiskai on May 25, '10 09:35:07AM

This is cool. I wish someone would come up with a way to make Time Machine work better over ARD. Two problems: First, on a headless unit, Time Machine's GUI flat-out doesn't work - just crashes the Finder. Secondly, over ARD, Time Machine's GUI hides the cursor. So one ends up playing a tedious game of blind clicking to get what one wants.

TimeMachine desperately needs a command line interface. That would solve issues of ARD if you are in a terminal via ssh. Been using TimeTracker for a GUI to view changes in a system from Apple updates that break things. TimeDog seems cool, but haven't had a chance to try it. Great start Apple, but please keep pushing TimeMachine forward. If I could only do what rsync and svn (et al) do by ignoring backups and other such extraneous files.

Arg... the filters keep saying this is spam. So much for linking to timedog
