What scenario could cause 7GB hourly Time Machine backups?

I finally figured out how to stop the annoying hourly Time Machine backups
I know, there are apps out there that allow you to schedule Time Machine backups - and I had one that worked great. Every morning I'd have my Mac startup at 8am and do the day's backup. Good enough.

Time Machine is backing up every hour and I can't stop it! HELP!
