The free, small software TimeMachineEditor ensures that you get quick and easy access to advanced settings of the Time Machine backup. For example, you can set intervals, fixed times for every day or backup events on fixed days at fixed times in the week. You can find the TimeMachineEditor download on the Developer website. I also have you downstairs Asimov another alternative for developers is listed. This allows dependencies, i.e. large code libraries with many small files, to be excluded.
The TimeMachineEditor directly accesses the Time Machine settings under macOS on the Apple Mac, iMac and MacBook. In the program window, which can be operated intuitively, you can make various backup settings. From hourly, multi-hour or daily backups of your hard drive to weekly, precisely scheduled backup copies of your files, everything is possible. The software is in English, but it is easy to understand. If in doubt, you can Google translator on the iPhone to have the individual menu items translated into German using the camera function;) You can find a first look and the TimeMachineEditor download with this link on the developer page.
Another backup software for macOS on the Apple Mac, iMac or MacBook is Asimovthat you yourselves download it from Github can. It is one of the apps designed for specific target groups. The focus is on developers, programmers and similar Mac users. Because Asimov does not create a complete image of the selected drive like TimeMachineEditor or similar apps, but excludes dependencies. As already described above, these are libraries with up to several thousand small files that would take up a lot of time during the backup and thus eat up resources.
