I am running Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

 

I have been tinkering with modifying backup interval for Time Machine.  In order to do this I have been attempting to edit the com.apple.backupd-auto plist file.  To change it I have read that all that is required is to do the following.

 

sudo defaults write /System/Library/Launch Daemons/com.apple.backupd-auto StartInterval -int 1800

However there is no StartInterval in the plist file.  So how is the above write command supposed to work?
Contents of the com.apple.backupd-auto is as follows
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<plist version="1.0">

<dict>

    <key>Label</key>

    <string>com.apple.backupd-auto</string>

    <key>Disabled</key>

    <true/>

    <key>ProgramArguments</key>

    <array>

        <string>/System/Library/CoreServices/backupd.bundle/Contents/Resources/backupd- helper</string>

    <false/>

    <key>KeepAlive</key>

</dict>

</plist>
