10.5: Set the Time Machine backup interval
Authored by: cagg on Nov 07, '07 05:42:03PM

What does one have to do for this to be in effect (beside reboot, I assume)? I switched TM to OFF, changed the interval to 4 hours (14,400), then switched TM back ON and it is still doing them hourly.

I also tried using launchctl to unload/load that config file to no avail.

10.5: Set the Time Machine backup interval

I answered my own question: even though the prefs screen indicates a time within the hour, it actually doesn't do the backup until every 4 hours as specified in the file
