    i know this might be a stupid question, but if i delete files off my internal hard drive (Macintosh HD), will it still be on my external hard drive or will it just add to it?
    Thanks alot!

    Time machine makes back-ups in whatever shape the files are in your Mac. If you delete a file it will be deleted of the next back-up; however, the file will still be there from the previous back-up.

    That's what Time Machine does anyways, let's you go back in time and recover a lost/deleted file.
