So, more Time Machine Issues... go figure. I have time machine turned off and manually backup when i make big changes or like 2-3 times a week. Connected to a 6TB G-drive via Firewire 800. I am dealing with Huge backups, which is being discussed in another thread. But my problem is that I have Time Machine turned off! I still have not timed it yet to know exactly how often it happens or even know if its happening in set increments, but i am gonna say every 8 to 12 hours or so I notice that Time Machine is auto backing up... Why is it doing this! I checked the code in the time machine file and its still set to 3600 (1 hours in seconds), so its still set as the default settings. But its set to off and keeps backing up by itself. any suggestions? Do we think that there is a code issue somewhere on my machine? should i completely wipe the backup folder on my External and start from scratch and see if its still doing it?
