    including stuff to TM (instead of excluding)
    anyway to do so? ive only got a small partitioned HD that i would like to use to backup documents and important files. in options, i can only choose to exclude stuff, but i dont know really what to exclude to make it fit.

    i hope that makes sense

    Unfortunately, Time Machine doesn't have an option for you to choose which folders to backup, simply which ones NOT to backup.

    I would suggest excluding every folder except for the ones that you want backed up. Generally these include the Documents, Music, Movies, and Downloads folders.
