    Hi, I am trying to change com.apple.backupd-auto.plist file, to set up TM back up interval and when I go to save it says "You do not have appropriate access privileges". I am using administrator account, also went into file info and changed permissions to read&write and still get that message. Am I missing something here or is ti something else? I used to be abel to do that when used Tiger, with different files though.

    I don't know if there is an answer yet, I think Apple recognizes this as a glitch and hopefully they will fix it for Snow Leopard. I also got similar messages when running System Update.

    The error is because you did not grant yourself write privileges on the parent directory. Change the permissions on the LaunchDaemons folder that contains com.apple.backupd-auto.plist.
