    I have a 500GB hard-drive, 200GB of which is full. I also have a 100 GB partition for Bootcamp and I've just bought a 500GB hard-drive for backing up my stuff.

    My understanding is Time Machine won't touch the Windows partition. Can I set up Bootcamp so it only uses a partition on the external hard-drive? I was thinking of using 350GB for Timemachine, 100GB for Windows and 50GB for me to play around with.

    Yes. This is pretty much my setup, if you divide all the storage spaces by about 5.
