I've just noticed my Time Machine is only backing up 35GB of my (nearly full) 120GB MacBook Air. It would appear it has only ever been doing this. When I go to System Preferences then Time Machine, the only exclusion files listed is the name of the External Hard Drive I use for the back up. When I look under the folders in the Time Machine  there are no photos or videos etc. It seems to be mostly program files. Please help.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
