    I just did a Time Machine Back up of my entire Macbook Pro,
    but when i do a size check, my macbook pro drive says it is
    243 GB, but my Time Machine Back up is only 220 GB.....?

    Why is the a difference ? I am just worried that it didn't back up
    the entire drive....?

    thanks for any help...!

    If I remember correctly it doesn't back up caches (which can get fairly large and change often), virtual memory, and probably a few other small, unimportant things.
