    Is Nano a good way to edit plist files ?

    I changed the time frame on my auto backup so it would only go once a day instead of hourly, now it seems like it does not run at all unless I do it manually.


    Am I missing something or is Nano not good for editing these files?

    TIA ...

    I'd suggest using defaults instead; that's what it's for. I see no reason why nano shouldn't work, though.

    This is a home computer why would I want to back up data hourly?

    Defaults are like the weather ever changing !!

    Because Time Machine is incremental and takes only a few minutes to update a backup?
