Time Machine in Lion is working fine. I previously reported it as not working. However, I forgot that you need to turn time machine OFF for the schedule to change.

The functionality under Mountain Lion v10.8.1 has problems. After turning off TimeMachineEditor to perform a SuperDuper clone backup TimeMachineEditor has not started a backup in over 72 hours even after manually starting the backup. Also, Show Time Machine logs does not show anything in the window.

Seems to still be working here… I haven't tried out a lot of different settings, but my twice a day (at specific times) backup is still working… Also, I opened Time Machine Editor to re-apply the settings (which is usually necessary after an update), and everything was still in place.

My once a day back up does not work even if I reapply the settings or reinstall the app even though the app tells me the the once daily settings were applied. Now Time Machine is driving me crazy with hourly back ups. Only solution is to unplug power and back up only when connected to power.

My above comment is wrong. The program works fine. I just forgot to turn the TIME MACHINE off in settings. The editor app has it's own ON button.

It is working fine!

This has been working hit or miss for me. It will run ok for a period and then stop working again. It may have to do that I install the developer updates for Lion as they come out (currently 11C37)… In doing so, I have probably forgotten to adjust the settings….

Where can I schedule backups at certain times,. not intervals?

Mail seems to work very slowly or not at all when time machine editor is backing up
