Hi all, I wonder if someone can help me with this question about time machine.
I have a 2007 MBP whos graphics card failed - i've just had it fixed.
However, many months passed between this failure and getting it fixed, and as its so old i realised it wasnt worth fixing, rather, better off buying a new one - so I bought a glossy 13 inch model but this made me feel sick within 10 mins, so i got a 15 inch matte screen made, not so bad, but it made me sick after an hour - so im basically sensitive to LED backlighting! therefore, i'm fixing the old one, and hoping i can get another year or so out of it and praying a new technology screen comes out that i can take!
the reason im writing all this is because the old mbp only had 150gb capacity. I have 200gb of music etc that i kept on external hard drives, however because i got a 500gb new laptop, the music etc was moved onto this new laptop, so when i did time machine back up, i have 300 or so gb total. (before sending this new laptop back to apple)
therefore, i guess i cant do time machine when i get this 2007 mbp back from being fixed(as the time machine back up is much bigger than the capacity of my 2007 mbp) . Can i remove all the music etc from my time machine back up, (making sure that the back up is less than 150 gb) then do the time machine back up, and put the music onto an external hard drive again? ive noticed in the past it doesnt seem to like it when you delete things from the time machine back up file
Please let me know if you need any more info, or somethings not clear here - many thanks for your help in advance
