    I recently got a new computer and wanted to continue using the same back up and keep all of my old backups. Whenever I open up time machine, it wants to make a new backup of my 98GB. I just want to add on to my older ones.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    "If you want to view your previous backups, Control-click or right-click the Time Machine icon in your Dock or Option-click the Time Machine menu extra and Choose "Browse Other Time Machine Disks," then select your previous backup volume. You will enter the Time Machine where will you be able to browse your previous back ups and restore files."
