"Works flawlessly in the background."
Once it is set up, it requires no further maintenance. The price (free) can't be beat.
Setting up TimeMachineEditor is confusing. It isn't made clear that after turning off Time Machine, it should be left in the off position. (See ?Bottom-line summary? below)
The TimeMachineEditor instructions read: ?Time Machine automatic backups must be turned OFF while TimeMachineEditor handles the backups scheduling by itself.? The key word here is ?while? -- I interpreted that to mean that Time Machine should be turned off only while TimeMachineEditor is being set up. What happened was that after choosing the TimeMachineEditor settings, I would repeatedly go back to the Time Machine Prefs and turn it back on. Of course, the TimeMachineEditor settings were gone and Time Machine reverted to its hourly backups. I eventually learned, on your web site's FAQ, that
?TimeMachineEditor handles the scheduling itself and has its own ON / OFF switch (which behaves very much like the one from Time Machine).? I think that this statement should be included with the download info accompanying TimeMachineEditor.
