You can have Time Machine perform a backup at any time, even if you don’t have Back Up Automatically selected in Time Machine preferences.
  • Start a backup: Click the Time Machine icon IL_TimeMachine_osx.png in the menu bar, then choose Back Up Now.
  • Pause a backup: Click the Time Machine icon IL_TimeMachine_osx.png in the menu bar, then choose Skip This Backup.
  • Resume a backup: Click the Time Machine icon IL_TimeMachine_osx.png in the menu bar, then choose Back Up Now.
If the Time Machine menu isn’t in the menu bar, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Time Machine, then select “Show Time Machine in menu bar.”
