I've searched and cannot find the information on this anywhere. What size hard drive does Apple recommend for Time Machine. I have a 320GB iMac currently using 32GB of space and an AirDisk with about 80GB. I have another external hard drive that is 180GB. Will Time Machine back everything up on this drive or should I pick up a 500GB drive?

Ideally you'll want the same size of drive as your internal. But, your current drive will work fine for now since you don't have all that much on the internal to backup.

That's what I figured. Thanks a lot :D!
