    Can someone help me with a TM questions? TM has filled my 500GB external hard drive that has been used as a back up for a little while now. I have purchased (as yet not plugged in) a 2TB external hard drive and intend to use this as my new back up HD.
    Q. How do I transfer the back ups (that currently reside on my 500GB drive that will no longer be used for backup) and get TM to continue to use the transferred information as the basis for new back ups? If this is not possible, is it easier to keep the original files separately and just start afresh?
    Many thanks.
