I'm assuming your drive is filled up due to media files? Have you considered permanently backing up those files? I look at Time Machine as an operational backup system, not something for archival or long term storage.

Good point Basalite and others.  I should probably change my backup strategy, but yes, being a professional photographer I have about 80% of the 2tb drive full right now not to mention my old CD/ DVD iView system.  I agree, I should probably copy the oldest for archiving and let TM work as a backup that serves as a safety net for more recent things.  Given that approach I could probably use a 1tb for TM.  Thanks for the suggestions. It is time to rethink the system.
