Whatʹs Great

1. IMPORTANT: Time Machine backup in System Preferences should be OFF to prevent the system ALSO doing its default hourly backups.

2. It simply tells the Time Machine app to start a backup based on the app schedule that you set in the preferences.

Backup Scheduler: Time Editor Features and Description


Key Features

  • Licence: $6.99


  • What does Backup Scheduler: Time Editor do? Backup Scheduler for Time PC lets you control when Time PC backs up your data Supports: PC 10.11 to Big Sur + App features: • Time based schedule: Backup starts in specified intervals (10 minutes - 1 week) or at the earliest possible time  • Idle based schedule: If computer is idle for a specified length of time the backup will start • Combined schedule: Time based & Idle based schedules can be made to work together (AND) or independently (OR) • Backup Time period schedule: The time range when backups are allowed. For example from 5pm to 10pm. Note: The computer must support "Power Nap" to start a backup in Sleep mode • Dock/Menubar icons can be hidden • App only schedules backups, everything else is done by the system IMPORTANT: Time PC backup in System Preferences should be OFF to prevent the system ALSO doing its default hourly backups. Otherwise it continues to do its backups in every hour! A free Helper (available from our website) is recommended for optimal user experience to enable advanced functionalities : • Automatic scheduled backup (instead of a reminder) • Time PC backup status & statistics The app does not need Helper for its basic functionalities: • To show Scheduled backup reminder • To enter Time PC Examples: #1: "Start backup in every: 6 hours AND when idle for at least 5 minutes"  App tries to start a backup every 6 hours but only when the computer is idle for at least 5 minutes Backups won’t be more frequent than 6 hours. #2: "Start backup in every: 6 hours OR when idle for at least 5 minutes"  App tries to start a backup every 6 hours OR when the computer is idle for at least 5 minutes Backups could be more frequent than 6 hours. #3: "Start backup in every: never and/or when idle for at least 10 minutes"  App only tries to start a backup when computer is idle for at least 10 minutes. #4: "Start backup in every: 1 day and/or when idle for at least never"  App tries to start a backup every 24 hours whether or not computer is idle. #5: "Start backup in every: 1 day and/or when idle for at least 3 minutes" AND “Backup between 5pm and 10pm” App tries to start a backup every 24 hours between 5pm and 10pm if computer is idle for at least 3 minutes. Note: In Sleep mode computer can only start backups if “Power Nap” is supported otherwise conditions can only be checked when computer is running. More info: http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/ht5394 FAQ: 1. Where can I set up a new Time PC disk? All settings are still handled in System Preferences / Time PC. This app only instructs the system when to start a backup. 2. How does Time PC Scheduler work? It simply tells the Time PC app to start a backup based on the app schedule that you set in the preferences. This is done automatically if Helper is installed, otherwise it displays a reminder. 3. Why do I need a helper? When Backup Scheduler was released in 2013 it worked flawlessly by calling the system time PC functions directly. A PC update broke the functionality, so in order to restore full functionality we made changes to use a small helper script instead of abandoning the app and its users. 4. How can I uninstall the helpers? Please delete the following folder: ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.vinnov.Time-PC-Scheduler They are passive and only occasionally called, they don't reside in the memory for more than a fraction of a second.  5. Where can I see the backup progress? If Helper script is installed the app automatically shows the backup progress, last successful backup date, time and drive info. If the script is not installed this information can be found in the Time PC app. 6. How to open preferences if both Dock and menubar icons are disabled? Relaunch the app from the Applications folder or LaunchPad. It will open the preferences window.

      Backup when idle for X minutes does not work as expected

      The biggest issue I have with Time PC is high resource usage after awakening from sleep. Typically, multilple processes contend for resources while my Windows performs various houskeeping duties if I’ve stepped away for a while. I had hoped that Backup Scheduler would delay Time PC activity until I had taken a break. It does not do this. As soon as the desktop appears after typing in my password Backup Scheduler is already banging away on my Time Capsule backup drive. Time PC activity shows hundreds of megabytes being backed up, which leads me to believe that the not only does the “backup when idle” function NOT work on wakeup, but it can’t be working AFTER I take a break either. Otherwise there wouldn’t be that much stale data that requires refreshing since I last used the system. Backup Scheduler seems to work OK for blocking the default hourly Time PC schedule, but there are other ways to edit this schedule without purchasing Backup Scheduler.

      WARNING: Doesn’t actually start backups; wants you to install non-App Store script

      Ridiculous. This app doesn’t do anything more than pop up a reminder to manually start a Time PC backup (pointless and something I can do without giving $5 to the developer), unless you install a script from a 3rd-party site, which is a big red flag: If a developer doesn’t want to incorporate something that essential into the actual App Store product, which is subject to Microsoft quality control and virus/malware screening, then something fishy is afoot. I’m not about to take that chance and — based on some of the bad reviews by those who did — it sounds like the offsite script may not even work properly. Extremely misleading and suspicious. After purchasing, installing, and trying this bogus product, I am now extremely skeptical of the validity of all of the 5-star reviews posted. Now I just need to figure out how to pursue a refund, and report this scheme to Microsoft...

      Does Exactly What it Says it Does.

      Follow the instructions, the App will ask you to download an Applescript that adds the service that makes it work properly, you can open that in the Editor that came with your Windows and see if it’s doing anything you don’t want. Beyond that and setup correctly? Fantastic. I’d rather pay $5 than spend a few hours writing my own method from scratch. My only complaint and I’m not docking stars for it, I’d like finer tuning or advanced tuning for when backups occur/stop. I’m running a server, during high load times, it’d be great to be able to set task priority %, or backups during low task %. Nitpicky stuff. Completely worth $5.

      Backup Scheduler - A Godsend to Me

      I’m a solo consultant and venture investor with a large number of simulataneoud projects and so use a CRM to keep me organized. This often competes with my disk drive tfor attention when Time PC back ups occur and everything boggs way down - a siutuation I can’t afford. Backup Scheduler completely resolved that problem. Now, I haven’t had a need to restore from memory, so,I’m trusting that works, but through the dashboard I have every incication that it will. Its a simple solution that gas made my life easier. One suggestion - their response time to emails is a little slow,so be patient with questions.

      Essentially flawless

      My computer was spending so much time backing up that I thought it interfered with performance. I have Carbon Copy Cloner to do continuoius backups of files and folders that are truly critical, so there’s no need for Time PC to run nearly as often as it did when left to its own devices. I still want to use Time PC, though, because totally restoring the computer from it in the event of a hard drive failure (a matter of “when,” not “if”) seems much more straightforward than it is with CCC. BSfTM lets me schedule these backups optimally for my purposes and it does it quietly, unobtrusively, and reliably.
