    i somehow accidentally deleted my pictures folder, then emptied the trash, not sure how it happened but its definitely gone. although im not too worried, the only thing i lost were about 8 wallpapers and ~300 personal pictures but the personal pics are all on facebook if i feel the need to get them, either way i only have 8.03gb left on my mbp :eek: maybe its time to get an ext hd

    Yeah, I'm hoping that it does something more like save the old files etc you delete as like text files, almost as programs. So it doesn't save the 4 GB movie file, it saves a 20kb text file that when Time Machine opens it, your movie is reproduced.


    Thats the new technology with Videos. Instead of streaming videos, you download a tiny file and your comuter does all the work, isntead of your internet connection.
