    Commands entered into Xterm to control TimeMachine do not seem to be working. They are not reflected in system preferences.

    I need to set the backups 12 hours apart or be able to turn it on and off.


    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.TimeMachine AutoBackup -bool false

    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.backupd-autoStartInterval -int 48000

    Help appreciated.
    Thanks

    I recently tried the former but I couldn't get it to work. The latter seems to.
    Thanks. This is a big help.
