And if I let it initiate the backup on it's own, an hour later, it will easily get over 1GB.

To clarify, right after the backup is complete, when run tmutil compare I expect to see zero updated files. Consequently, the backup size should be zero.

Or, in the other scenario where I let it run the backup on it's own, after an hour, I expect tmutil compare to spit only the files I've edited. So, the backup size after an hour of development should be less than 10MB, and not over 1GB.

Some pointers please?

  • Could you clarify the issue? AFAIK this is the default behaviour of time machine. Are you hoping to perform a more selective backup? – Scottmeup Aug 4 '18 at 13:10
  • @Scottmeup updated it. Thanx. – Birowsky Aug 4 '18 at 13:27
  • What do you mean by "I let it run the backup on it's own"? – nohillside Aug 4 '18 at 13:57
  • Things happen while the backup is actually backing up files. – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Aug 4 '18 at 13:58
  • @ThorbjørnRavnAndersen There seems to be rather a lot to happen here... – nohillside Aug 4 '18 at 14:07

I would exclude those noisy apps that are storing configuration data in the application bundle. Even if you exclude them and all /Applications on a temporary basis, you can get a clean, small backup and know things are ok. Then you can see if these apps have an update or the developer can help and choose to exclude portions of them or live with their messy habits.

You can install Mac apps in other places and perhaps have a messy apps folder and put an alias to them in /Applications and exclude their folder long term.

  • I'm afraid it won't work. I know you only see Charles, Cyberduck and Fluid in the question, but that's just an excerpt of the tmutil compare output. If I let it run, you'll see all possible apps, and then it'll just keep on running. I know it makes no sense. But I don't even know how to approach this. I'm trying BackupLoupe now.. let's see.. – Birowsky Aug 5 '18 at 9:57
  • How will excluding /Applications entirely not work to see if that’s causing the slow @Birowsky ? – bmike Aug 5 '18 at 14:27
