    My HD is using 450GB of 900 GB available.
    However, time machine is reporting that it has backed up only 260GB
    What am I doing wrong that Time Machine is not getting all of my files backed up?

    Are you excluding files or directories in the TIme Machine Preferences? Do you have a Boot Camp partition setup?

    I have a boot camp partition - I excluded that from the HD size I mentioned. I am not excluding any files or folders. All I exclude is the boot camp partition and the external drive itself
