Renaming Files/folders and Changing the Details Of Audio Files. How Does Time Machine Respond To It?

I want to rename some files and folder and make some edits to some audio files (remove an old album cover and stick a new one in). When I back up to time machine do the files get corrupted, or do they get duplicated? Or does it simply replace that old file/folder with the new name or audio file details?

    Nothing would get corrupted. You would simply see different folders and files as you “went back in time” using Time Machine.

    So if you started in your Documents folder and initiated Time Machine, you’d start with how things are now. But if you went back in time to yesterday, you would see the files and folders as they were yesterday.

    You can just try it and see. Create a folder and put some subfolders in it. Same them what you want. Then a few backups (hours) later, try renaming them. Then go into Time Machine and look around.
