10.5: Set the Time Machine backup interval
Authored by: bakapetro on Nov 10, '07 05:42:21PM
Another way to change this setting without messing around with text files (not that there is anything wrong with that) is to use Lingon (http://lingon.sourceforge.net/). Time Machine's settings are available under "System Daemons" -> "com.apple.backupd-auto". Change the run interval from "Run it every 1 hour" to whatever you want.

This way, you can even run it at specific times of day (I haven't tested that option, so do it at your own risk).

10.5: Set the Time Machine backup interval
Authored by: franc on Sep 16, '10 05:46:53AM

Lingon-Scheduler is not working with me, OSX 10.6.4.
But Time in Seconds is working fine with Lingon.
I didn't change the "Disabled" CheckBox, though this "com.apple.backupd-auto" is marked as disabled, but it runs anyway.
