hi all - is there any way to specify exactly what times Time Machine will do its thing? These are not in the Time Machine preferences. Perhaps someone knows a reliable third-party app?


It would be great to specify exact times when TM would run.


It would also be great to try to get TM backups and Dropbox auto-syncing to not happen at the same time!!


any advice?






snow leopard / imac desktop / macbook pro / Dropbox Pro / TM to external 3TB hard drive

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
