After working on a Mac Pro server and experiencing super slow performance with students signing in taking several minutes, there had to be something to speed up everything. Time Machine doesn’t need to be backed up every hour so I found a program called TimeMachineScheduler. This allows you to set a specific time when backups are performed, and can be a helpful tool to people who need backups, but don’t need one every hour and would much rather back up when you aren’t using your Mac.
You must have Time Machine turned off so that the Scheduler can manually set the times. Download the PowerPC version 3.0.3 here.
