If you have just removed your original drive and slapped it into an external enclosure and are now able to boot from that drive without using SD! or CCC and wish to add a TM backup to that partition - should be able to do that - although I would not recommend it.
I apologized for my misleading wording I only keep the original 160hd(external) as a 'backup' in case I need to put it back into the MBP for repair purpose with Apple or somehow my internal 500gb craps out. At the same time, I would like to have it designate and store TimeMachine backup in it. Instead of having it sitting in an enclosure doing nothing, since I'm only taking up 26GB so far. Thanks.
