Re: Backing up from MacBook Pro; Lion 10.7.3; to FireLite

Resolved Question:

Re: Backing up from MacBook Pro; Lion 10.7.3; to FireLite 100GB model FWFL100-N.

I erased 67GB prior backup on the external for room to start over. TIME MACHINE is set up to backup EVERYTHING. @ this moment I want to back up only my DOCUMENTS, EMAIL FILES, MUSIC FILES AND PHOTO FILES........ because I have to leave for the airport in < 1 hour.
Is there a way to do?

Go to System Preferences / Time Machine select Options and you can only select what to Exclude not what to backup. So Exclude evrything except your Home folder for now.
