How Time Machine manages backup archives

If you use Time Machine for a full backup with deep archives from macOS, you can manually delete any of the hourly, daily, and weekly snapshots that the app makes and retains.

But underneath that minimalist exterior is an app that allows for a surprisingly wide variety of options, ranging from the ability to apply Instagram-like filters or to automatically categorize photos according to “memories” based on when and where you took them.

A lot of the services rely on iCloud storage, and they’re free…until you exceed the paltry 5GB of included service, at which point you pay monthly from $1 for 50GB to $10 for 1TB. That’s not a terrible lot, but 5GB doesn’t even cover the capacity of any of the iOS devices Apple…
