Is there any way to make Time Machine back up only certain folder/programs?

    I have a 500 GB harddrive but only a 250 Gigabyte external. I was wondering if I could set it so that time machine only backs up stuff that I think is important rather than my entire laptop.

    No, it can only back up everything. Although, you can set exceptions, and exempt everything except what you want backed up.
