Hello everyone.

So today I was doing a backup and my external hard drive fell off the tabel and disconnected itself mid-back up. Now I am getting this error when I attempt to do the backup again,

"This backup is too large for the backup disk. The backup requires 349.79GB but only 319.30GB are available."

This is understandable, except for the fact that my HD on my MPB is only 320BG.

I tried look online and I read that I should try to reset Time machine by deleting the File, com.apple.TimeMachine.plist. I tried to look, but this file does not exist on my computer.


Does anyone have any ideas as how to fix this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you.
