    Hey all,

    I'm in the process partitioning my backup drive so that I have one partition as a bootable OS and a bigger partition for my Time Machine backups. I made the mistake of setting up Time Machine on the drive after already installing OS X on it and not partitioning a separate Time Machine partition.

    My question is, are the only files Time Machine uses in the backups folder? Or is there something else I should make sure not to erase when I make the transfer to the partition?

    The only files Time Machine uses are the ones in the Backups.backupdb folder.
