    If you remove a file from your mac, will time machine update it self and also remove it from the external drive? Or does it save and keep everything?

    Also if it saves everything is there a way to go back and delete something, for instance some files that you don't need on your desktop.

    Thank you in advance for your responses, I appreciate it.

    It kjeeps the file on the time machine! So you can rewind time and retrieve it!

    to elaborate more - ^^ it keeps the file in the time machine backup UNTIL that backup gets overwritten either monthly, weekly or hourly (depending on circumstances of course).
