    The same functionality is available to those with a little bit of know-how.

    Undoubtably, this is what that application is doing.

    I believe it is just a fancy way of editing the following file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.backupd-auto.plist

    As per this hint

    When i ran the program it did change the settings in that plist. Looking through it a bit more it also seems to load and unload the necessary launch daemon so that does save you logging out and logging back in again I suppose.

    i didn't know of how do manually do this, so i guess this should work out already cuz i only wanted to backup once a month.

    Great that you guys like it, but I don't use it as a prefer the 1 hour back up. And after I download music, I use the new 10.5.2 time machine menu feature to do a force back up.
