    I have a 500gb disk for timemachine and I created 3 partitions. One of which is used for TM.

    Can I extend that space by removing a partition and adding it to TM?

    Thanks

    Yeah, you can but you might need a program to delete a partition, I think that's what you meant at least

    I think your question is more about re-partitioning a drive (presumably without formatting) than about Time Machine. I don't know the answer to your question but you might want to edit the thread's subject line...

    Yes, but only if the partition you delete immediately follows the Time Machine partition.

    Old Time Machine on new Lion

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know if my old Time Machine backups from Snow Leopard will be saved when I'll instal a new Lion system.

    Also does anyone know what requirements are needed to run Lion? I have an older MacBook Pro - 2006?

    Thank you.

    Might get more attention to your question if you started your own thread.

    I like your advice and I would like to open a New Thread, but as you can read I am a "Newbie" and have no clue where to find a link to start a new subject.

    Thanks for any future suggestions.

    Have a great day!
