Hi there,  Aaargh, Time machine says I need 1.04 Tb for my backup when in fact all i've used up on the hard drive is about 250-300gb. I've excluded assorted folders to no avail. Restarting & relaunching finder seemed to work previously I vaguely recall. I wonder if it 'resets' itself if the external hard drive is unplugged & replugged??

 

using osx 10.6.8 - everything up to date

my external hd is a new portable WD 1TB, ext. journaled drive, with about 455gb space. Other manul backups on it already, no issues etc etc

 

thanks in advance!

 

ps I'm currently reading this which will hopefully work...
