    Hello folks,

    Do you guys leave the schedule as it is? I know everyone's needs differ, but I don't really need an hourly backup, I don't work on that much stuff on my Mac to need an hourly backup, daily would do just fine. Is that possible and if so how do you change the timings and does anyone else do the same?

    Thanks.

    It only backs up files that have been changed or added since the last back up so I would recommend leaving it set to default.
