Does Time Machine keep Safari history if Safari set to automatically delete history?

    The title wouldn't fit properly so sorry for missing a word.

    I have Safari set to automatically delete history after 1 month, but surely it doesn't delete from Time Machine as well? Deleting after 1 month is almost useless if Time Machine is going to store it.

    I also have Skype set to delete messages after 1 month.

    I haven't tried it but I see no reason why TM would delete the relevant files, it just doesn't work that way. You'll have to go in and manually delete the old files. It would be a pretty useless backup utility that deleted files you deleted on the main computer.
