    Create a root directory "/Time Machine" and exclude the rest of your file system.

    I backup only my user folder, by excluding the other folders on my drive. It only takes a couple of exclusions (Applicaitons, Library, System).

    I have a 160GB drive in my MBP, but my Time Machine backup has approximately 30GB...
