My mac suddenly said it was nearly full and then stopped working that day- a repairer emptied the mac + reinstalled applications. I have retrieved some of my work from my external HD which TM had saved-but am afraid to put it all back as the mac will overfill again....will the TM backup save it all, even as time goes by and old backups are deleted?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
