Hi,

I got one client who happened to use a Mac O/S 10.6. She wanted to backup her data from Mac HD into her external HD every 30mins.

I'm new to Mac so I posted this question...Does Mac Desktop has built-In backup system that you can use, configure to backup your data on every specific interval period?

Or, is there a third party backup application for Mac Desktop that is quite suitable for backup job?

Appreciate your comment.

TM backs up hourly, but there are utilities (timemachineeditor comes to mind) that let you adjust the timing. If she finds TM lacking (it is very space inefficient, for one thing), she should look at crashplan.
