I wanted to use my Time Capsule as a file server and don't want the backups to eat up all the space. I've got a 250GB SSD in my MBP and I think 3 times that space is plenty enough so I partitioned the TC drive to give 750GB to my sparsebundle. I'm approaching that 750GB mark and I'm wondering how TC decides what to backup when it runs out of space. Does it just drop the oldest backup or does it value certain files higher than others? Any feedback is welcome!
