I got the message that my start up disk is nearly full and I need to delete some files. Blah. So I got have a few questions: 1. Regarding Time Machine, does saving backups do anything to affect how much of your hard drive is being used? I highly highly doubt it, but I wanted to ask just in case. I have TM set up with an external HD, but it hasn't been ran in nearly a month because I started getting those stupid messages about it being too full even though it's supposed to overwrite old backups. Anyway, if I can just rep-backup everything and free up some GBs of space, I'd rather do that. 2. Is it worth purchasing a larger internal HD for my MBP (Early 2008 model) or should I.. 3. Use an external HD to keep files on? I have an Airport Extreme BS, but accessing and saving files to/from the external HD via the AEBS takes a VERY long time. Plus, whether it's due to a piss poor set up or just the AEBS, it's not very reliable as far as my MBP staying connected to the AEBS at all times. I seem to lose connection in the middle of the night and day quite frequently, requiring a reset of my AEBS. I have a fear of being somewhere with my MBP and needing to access something or just wanting to listen to a song or whathaveyou and not having it on my laptop already. I'd rather not carry my external HD wherever I go, but if I must, I suppose I will. I also don't want to have to rely on my AEBS connection when I'm at home either to access whatever files I have saved on it. Thanks for any answers/suggestions.
