I searched MRoogle already, I didn't find anything quite like what my problem is. I know you can change it by editing the plist, com.apple.backupd-auto.plist. However, I am unable to save it even if I do the following: Code: LaunchDaemons $ sudo chown [my username] com.apple.backupd-auto.plist LaunchDaemons $ sudo chgrp admin com.apple.backupd-auto.plist Of course, I changed it back to root and wheel, respectively. What did I miss? This article, for instance, does not even mention the fact that root owns the plist!
