I have just started using Time Machine... I use external hard drives to back up all of my home video, photos, music, docs etc, and thought this may be a great way to do it without having to do it manually. However, part of the reason I use externals is to be able to delete files (if not commonly used) off my computer but keep on the external for future use.

My question is this. If I have files on my computer and they are backed up via Time Machine, and moved to the external HD, and then I delete the file off the computer and Time Machine backs up again, will it then delete the file off of the External HD?

If so, how do you recommend I get around this?

Thanks!
