    Hi!

    I just bought a one-terabyte Time Capsule. Can I limit Time Machine to use half the disk? I'm also using it for file storage.

    You can partition the disk in disk utility. I have two Macs that are using Time Machine. On each one, I took the disk and partitioned it giving Time Machine 100 GB of space. This way, you still have allot of space to use for other things.

    You can partition a disk even if there are already files stored on it and be able to keep them.

    I'll try that! I never thought of using DU. Thanks!
