    I am doing a project in college and I need some statistics on the usage of Time Machine. It would be very helpful if you could answer these simple questions:

    1. How much space do the folders and devices that are being backuped to the TM-disk take up today? (most likely Machintosh HD)
    2. How big is Backups.backupdb?
    3. How far back in time does your backup go?

    Thanks,

    Axel

    That's a good way to get your thread closed.
