How often does Time Machine backup, and can you change the setting? I have looked all over and cannot find the information or option. Thanks.

Almost everything you ever wanted to know about Time Machine but were afraid to ask. ATPM 15.03 - How To: Time Travel: Introduction to Time Machine. This will answer both of your questions and perhaps a few more.

My solution is to use Time Machine Editor and set back ups to my schedule. And in Sys Prefs/Time Machine you can set exclusions that will not be backed up - i exclude Apps as they are always being upgraded easier to download the latest.

Thank you very much. One last question that I have genuinely searched for and that Apple does not seem to answer: can I select Time Machine to backup to two drives at one time? Thanks.
