Starting a Time Machine Backup When Desired

Related: none
Last updated March 02, 2010 - Send Feedback

Time Machine should normally be left running in automatic mode, giving you regular backups that cost you no mental effort.

You can initiate a Time Machine backup whenever you like, even if Time Machine is turned off: you can leave it turned off, and just backup whenever you choose instead. This might be preferred for some specific uses, such as with Adobe Lightroom. However, turning off Time Machine means you lose protection for everything until the next time you manually start a backup.

Tips

The same ideas hold any time you’ve completed some important work.
