Hi all,
I have a problem any time my time machine go to do a backup I get a pop up box saying the disk is full? I am using a 600 GB external drive, as the time machine. I checked the info on it and it has only 101 GB left. Do's time machine copy every or just the new stuff on the mac? as i have only use 240 GB on the mac HD. Some advice would be helpful

Thanks
