    I want to make the best use of my backup via Time Machine. Since TM backs up in the background in designated intervals, can I choose what it backs up instead of it backing up everything? For instance, can I have it just back up applications and related items, specific videos, music, specific photos and documents?

    You can, but you have to exclude anything you don't want.
