Start Time Machine Backup

Script Type: Shell

With Time Machine, you can back up files on your Mac that weren’t part of the macOS installation, such as apps, music, photos, and documents. When this Automated Task executes, the script initiates a backup.

To use this script on a device, Time Machine must be configured on the Mac.
