    Hey, how can you see what changed between time machine backups? Every hour it seems to have roughly 15-20 MB of changes, when all I've done is web browsed, and I'd rather not it backup random web caches or changes that aren't files I've directly manipulated, so I'd like to see what folders are causing these little updates and block them.

    I use an app called TimeTracker, which allows you to see what has been backed up with Time Machine. It's not very pretty, but it works fine on my Snow Leopard install:

    Hope that helps.
