  • version   – print the current version of this tool
  • disk      – print the current disk
  • disks     – print list of all Time Machine disks
  • volumes   – print list of all volumes
  • machine   – print the current machine
  • machines  – print the list of all machines backed up on the current disk
  • status    – print the current configuration
  • snapshots – print the list of snapshots for the current machine on the current disk
