I just got a 1TB verbatim usb3 external hdd and had it formatted in HFS+ journaled.

Now I'm interested in using time machine, however I don't want it to utilize the full 1tb for this, maybe only 150GB for VERY important stuff (what's essential to backup anyway?) just as a last resort in case of an emergency. How would I go about doing this? also what exactly does time machine backup?
