    New to Mac, so I hope I word this correctly.

    I did a Time Machine back up last night, and this morning I deleted a lot of duplicates for iTunes.

    When I do another Time Machine back up, will time machine notice that I deleted some songs from iTunes, and adjust the back up so it accurately reflects what is currently on my MBP?

    Thank you

    Yes it will. Although those old songs will still be stored in the Time Machine backup set under the older restore date should you ever want to get them back.

    It stores versions of snapshots of the whole Mac, space permitting, so you could for example restore the while machine back to how it was a week ago.

    Hi,

    yes sure it will, for the next backup.

    However, the duplicates will still be there in yesterday's backup.

    This is how TM works.
