    Like the title says is it possible to back up only a certain folder in time machine? I'm a producer and dj and instead of manually backing my files up every few months I'd like it to happen automatically but I don't care for any of the other programs or anything on my computer.

    Use the DO NOT BACK UP / EXLUDE THESE ITEMS FROM BACKUPS option in the System Preferences > Time Machine > Options dialog to exclude every folder besides the folder you want to backup.

    You have to go and exclude everything you don't want backed up. It would be easier (if you insist on using TM) to just backup everything.

    Otherwise, you can use a program like CarbonCopyCloner to select what directories you want to back up.
