Forum Question: Full Time Machine drive

Hi Gary,

If my Time Machine drive gets filled and I create a new TM back up with a new drive, how can I still access the info on the old drive?

    A Time Machine drive should never get full. It deletes old copies of files to make room for new ones. It should always have the most recent copy of every file, but then it also has a history of past versions of the files — as space allows. So if space doesn’t allow, it will reclaim space by removing old versions of files.
    As long as you TM hard drive is larger than your Mac’s drive, which is should be, then you don’t need to worry about it.
