TM will not delete files from the backup drives unless it runs out of disk space in which case it will start deleting oldest backups first. There is a setting in the TM preferences that can warn you if TM starts deleting older backups.

You can however manually delete files from the TM backups by launching TM and from the TM finder you can delete specific backups of files/folders. ( using the drop down box in that finder )

Tip... ensure you have a full bootable backup as well ( using Superduper! or similar ) as this is more convenient should you ever need to do a full restore.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
