    Time machine question
    is there a way to change the time machine settings so it doesn't back up as often?

    i really do not need hourly backups. daily at the most.
    15" MacBook Pro Aluminum, 2.53G / iPhone 3G 16G Black/TimeCapsule 1TB back up and media server/Mac Mini 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo

    There are Time Machine widgets available that can help you achieve that .....
    If you Google for it, I'm sure you'll find something.

    I like the hourly backup, because I make frequent changes to files and it allows me to ' undo ' some changes and go back to previous versions without loosing too much work.

    Cheers

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    where is your time machine drive any?is it an external?if so, then don't plug it in unless your ready to do backup. Once your external HD is attached it will automatically backup. Time machine is set to do it that way. You can go to options do in time machine preferences and take out the folder that you don't want to be backed up
