    If there's data you don't want to back up, open Time Machine Preferences, select the Options button and add to the Exclusions list.

    I have the SSD and HDD 27" Imac. Time Machine works just fine, as I backup to an external USB-2 drive. You may wish to get an external firewire drive, as the backup thru USB is somewhat slow.
