Last week, I had to replace a malfunctioning hard drive on my 2008 iMac. I loaded my files from my Lacie 500gb Time Machine. Now I am unable to backup because it says the backup is too big. It is reading the backup as much bigger than it used to (320gb vs. previously 250gb) so I am not sure why that is the case. But more importantly what do I need to do without buying a new backup?



iMac (20-inch Early 2008), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
