I am using my time machine for the first time. I have bought an external backup mobile drive 1TB.

I have turned time machine on and it has save only 149gb of 250gb. How do I get it to save 250gb?

How do I see what it has actually saved and once stored how do I view and restore certain files back to my laptop?

Many thanks Christine
