Time Machine is Apple’s backup system that does incremental snapshots of your hard drive. But there is no GUI way to modify the time between each backup so if you want to modify it, here is how to achieve this:

1. Go to /System/Library/LaunchDaemons and make a backup of the following file, in another folder on your machine:
2. Make sure you have permision to read/write this file. If you can't, add yourself as an administator to the list.

3. Open com.apple.backupd-auto.plist in a text editor and search for this:

Change 3600 to whatever interval you want between the backups (in seconds) and save the file.

That's it!
