Hi everybody,

I have a strange problem (my wife, not me). She got a MBP 13" with 10.6.8 installed and a 500GB internal HD. She use for the BU an external drive of the same capacity.

Now the internal drive is 458,7GB full of data and the external drive used in the past for TM was reformatted to a fresh 500GB volume (497,52 in fact).

The problem is that TM doesn't make the bu on the external drive telling that the data need to be copied are 545GB and obviously the external drive is too small.


What the Math?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
